Bluff Cove News
Conservation is very important to us. We are very proud that the Bluff Cove Lagoon King penguin colony continues to grow.
Leucistic Gentoo penguin
Leucistic penguins are rare. They are ostracized by their penguin kin due to their unusual colouration – they are partially albino.
Referendum and Argentine pressure
The Falkland Island Government held a Referendum in 2013 where we showed the world our desire to remain British (99.8% in favour); journalists galore arrived in the islands, though during Prince William’s helicopter posting here we had come accustomed to the world’s media.
We have built a new road down the side of a stone-run, next to Argentine positions from 1982, to reduce our off-road journey time and to add to the comfort of our guests.
Our concerns for the wildlife
We know the fabulous wildlife of the Falklands is very vulnerable. The major threat over the previous centuries has been Man, the predator, in the quest for oil from birds and animals. Now man-made disasters remain the major threat.
