Description

Isolated in the south Atlantic between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula, the Falkland archipelago is one of the last unspoiled areas in the world and a region of wild beauty. Its very remoteness also makes the fauna and flora of these 420 islands unique.

Here huge "rookeries" of penguins, elephant seals and albatrosses make their homes, together with many other species which simply do not occur in the northern hemisphere. This book is a fully illustrated identification guide concerned largely with the 107 bird and 39 mammal species of the region, but also including selected fish, invertebrates and plants.

Since the explosion of wild-life tourism, the Falkland Islands have become a popular destination for cruises from the American continents and flights from the United Kingdom. This guide provides reading for those visitors, as well as a reference work for the islanders and indeed anyone interested in wildlife.
