Abstract

South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands are administered by the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands Government, based in the Falkland Islands. Heavily glaciated South Georgia provides a land base for myriad seals and penguins. Responsible ship-based tourism is encouraged. The South Sandwich Islands, actively volcanic, consist of a 390-km-long chain of 11 main islands. Fisheries in the South Georgia Maritime Zone are managed using an ecosystem approach aiming to conserve the marine environment.
