Home to beautiful species like the: Arctic Tern

The Arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea) is a seabird of the tern family, Sternidae.

The arctic tern flies from the frozen arctic at the top of the world to the frozen seas around Antarctica, then returns, every year. It takes a winding course, and so travels more than 40,000 miles each year. The average bird will travel nearly 3 million miles over the course of it's life. That's the equivalent of flying to the moon and back five times.
