South Georgia

This mountainous island is home to huge numbers of seabirds - albatrosses, petrels, the elegant king penguin, as well as the rockhopper and macaroni penguins. It is also the preferred breeding ground for thousands of elephant seals and Antarctic fur seals, with other species often visiting. The early 20th century saw establishment of several whaling stations on shore, and the decimation of the once abundant whales. Shackleton's miraculous arrival at one of these stations after his ship's sinking in the Weddell Sea has cemented its place in the human history. Hedgehog House photographers have followed Shackleton's footsteps, and been entranced by the abundant wildlife.
