Fun Facts
Deserts are aproximately 1/3 of the worlds land.
The largest desert is the Sahara
Only 20% of deserts are covered in sand.
Human impact is very large in the desert.
The desert has very delicate soil.
Plants are destroyed because soil in restricted areas is driven over.
This effects the balance of soil.
It can also easily destroy the plants.
Fortunately you can walk in the desert because humans don't weigh much.
The game Mario Kart 64 includes a track called Kalimari Desert, a reference to the Kalahari Desert in South America.
