The climate of Antarctica is the coldest on the whole of Earth. Antarctica has the lowest naturally occurring temperature ever recorded on the ground on Earth −89.2 °C or (−128.6 °F) at Vostok Station. Twenty years ago, Minnesota's Will Steger led the first dog-sled trek across Antarctica

Dogs were removed from Antarctica by April 1994. This ban was introduced because of concern that dogs might introduce diseases such as canine distemper that might be transferred to seals, and that they could break free and disturb or attack the wildlife.
