Dr. Richard Lee visited Primary last week, and talked to us about his work in Antarctica at Palmer Station. He shared stories of the long journey, life in Antarctica, and the animals that live in the area. He also brought many interesting items with him and let our students try on the cold weather gear he used in the Antarctic.
He let us observe some preserved specimens of the insects he studies while he is there. These tiny flies are actually the largest land animal in Antarctica. We’d like to extend special thanks to Dr. Lee for taking time out of his day to visit us—we learned so much!
