New Arctic Animal Trading Cards
December 6, 2021
The Office of Polar Programs has developed a set of 12 Arctic animal trading cards. These DIY cards can be easily printed and assembled, and feature illustrations and interesting facts of various well-known and not so well-known Arctic creatures!
This set compliments our existing Antarctic animal trading cards.
