What is the driest place on Earth?
Sahara Desert, Atacama Desert, Pelican Point, Namibia, or Dry Valleys, Antarctica?
As their name suggests, Antarctica's Dry Valleys have extremely low humidity and almost no snow or ice to cover them.
AZUZ: An international campaign has been launched to create a massive sanctuary, a protective area in the oceans around Antarctica. But that would make fishing there illegal. And that's part of the reason why efforts like this have failed in years past.
According to the environmental group Greenpeace, the international fishing industry has been using these waters to catch krill. These animals are like tiny shrimp. They're an important food source for the animals around Antarctica. The krill are also important to people as they can be used in oils, supplements and pet food.
We don't know yet whether the international community will agree to establish a new sanctuary but we did get a close-up view of Antarctica.
