Things to see in The Falkland Islands: Carcass Island
Named after the survey vessel on which young Horatio Nelson served, this island has had only three owners in a hundred years. As they avoided introducing rats and cats, its wildlife has no predators and is approachable.
Known for its colonies of Magellanic and gentoo penguin, it also has striated caracaras, king cormorants, night herons and elephant seals. Take a boat excursion to nearby West Point to see the Devil's Nose, home to 2,000 breeding pairs of black-browed albatross plus 500 pairs of rockhopper penguins, one of the most amazing sights in the Falklands.
