Wildlife Information for Visitors
If you are thinking of going to the Falklands, Wildlife Information for Visitors gives guidelines on how to enjoy the wonderful wildlife without causing harm or disturbance. There is also advice on how to get further help in planning your visit.
The Wildlife Timetable (35kb PDF) is a nature events calendar for the Falkland Islands. This is the southern hemisphere so springtime begins in October and winter starts in June. Here you can find out when elephant seals arrive, when penguins lay their eggs, and young albatross fly off to Brazil.

No biological samples may be taken from the Islands without permission and must be accompanied by an Export Licence.
