Abstract

South Georgia and how its history and heritage may be considered a unique source of human enrichment today is considered in the light
of the sealing and whaling eras and more recent times when science and tourism dominate. Attitudes to the whaling heritage have gradually
changed in this latter period. The spectacular natural heritage is emphasised, and a recent project on habitat restoration at the island
is mentioned
