Carcass Island is named after HMS Carcass. The absence of predators means that the island’s animals and birds tend to be carefree, trusting and approachable.
The island is known for its colonies of Magellanic and gentoo penguins. There is also a large colony of striated caracara (Johnny rook), a small elephant seal colony, king cormorants and night herons.
