The Falkland Islands are an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean, located about 300 miles from the coast of mainland South America, 700 miles from mainland Antarctica, and 3,800 miles from Africa. The archipelego, consisting East Falkland, West Falkland and 776 lesser islands, is a self-governing Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom. The capital, Stanley, is located on East Falkland.

The Falkland Islands are one of the last untouched wildlife wonders of the World. Unspoilt beaches, islands and cliffs provide a natural safe-haven for hundreds of species that have made the Falklands their home.
