The Falkland Islands - A Birder’s Paradise
Far in the South Atlantic, the Falklands are a collection of rugged, remote islands defined by their rich bird life and thriving waters. Along with a large population of the black-browed albatross, it is the four species of penguins that are the islands’ most famed residents. Magellanic, Gentoo, Rockhopper and King Penguin colonies cover the lands, offering visitors an up close look at these rare birds on hikes through the wilderness. The waters are home to fur seals and sea lions, dolphins and killer whales. On land, the British Territory retains Victorian architecture and a distinct English charm with lively pubs and museums.
