A presentation by Jeffery Reynolds and Kathy Ireland
South Georgia Island and the Falklands
During 4 trips in 9 years (2003-2012) we have spent a total of 7 weeks at South Georgia Island and 4 weeks in the Falklands. While the breadth of bird life is not as extensive as in some locales, the sheer numbers of some (300,000 King penguins at St. Andrews Bay) more than makes up for it. We would like to share some representative photos of the bird and animal life at both places as well as a brief bit about Sir Ernest Shackleton, famed Antarctic explorer, whose story is so intimately associated with South Georgia Island.
Jeffrey Reynolds, M.D., is currently in his 3rd and 4th occupations as a forensic pathologist and photographer, having previously been an aeronautical engineer and urgency care physician. Karen Ireland, M.D., is almost retired, having been a surgical pathologist for 31 years, and now employed as Jeff's overworked (and underpaid) assistant. We both love to travel and have been to all 7 continents.
