Did you know that Antarctica is the largest desert in the world? It receives so little rain or snow that it is almost as dry as the Sahara! Whether cold, hot, or somewhere in between, a third of Earth's land is part of the desert biome. Learn about the geography and resources of the desert biome as well as how animals and people have adapted to and impacted desert environments. Explore this biome's future and what people can do to help keep it safe.
