Sub-antarctic Islands

Remote, lonely, cold, often snow-covered, frequently wet, always windy - the subantarctic islands provide a vital refuge for the seabirds and seals of the Southern Ocean. Their early years saw disastrous attempts at settlement, or exploitation of the local penguin and seal populations. Now, conservation of the native vegetation and wildlife is a prime concern and people, whether tourists, scientists or Hedgehog House photographers, feel privileged to be able to visit these unique islands.
