The Falkland Islands is a UK overseas territory with a population of just 2500 (+3000 British military at Mount Pleasant Complex, an hour’s bumpy drive from the capital where 90% of the population live). The Falkland Islands is a remote archipelago lying off the coast of Argentina at 51° south and came to prominence when Argentina invaded in 1982. The Islands were recaptured and remain (very) British.
We are moving to the Falkland Islands to live in the capital, Stanley, for 2 years and due to popular demand we have decided to tell you all about our adventures down South.
The Islands are known for their unique and untouched wildlife, with over 185 different species of birds. For example, there are 5 different types of penguins (Rock Hoppers, Macaroni, Gentoo, King and Magellanic) and it works out that there are 250 penguins to every person on the Islands. Yay, pick up a penguin!!
We want this to be as interactive as possible so please comment and keep in touch regularly! We have a spare room so if you like what you see, please feel free to visit (as long as we know you).
