Approximately 2500 people make the Falklands their permanent home, spread out across the archipelago many live in almost complete isolation.
The landscape is similar across the islands, there are few hills and most of the land is covered in thick tussac grass. Conditions are perfect for wildlife, penguins can be found across the islands, Elephant Seals patrol the beaches while large pods of Orca Whales can be seen offshore. Seabirds such as the Southern Giant Petrel and the Sooty Albatross can be found nesting on the islands, or circling high above searching for food.
