FALKLAND & SOUTH GEORGIA ISLANDS
the falkland islands and the south
georgia islands are both "british overseas territories"
since 1833 and 1775, respectively. both are claimed by
argentina for a long time, yet to no avail.
falkland has about 3000 citizen, of which around 2/3 have british background. south georgia has no permanent population, except of about 30 british officers and researchers.
these two island groups are not part of the antarctica continent, yet features of their fauna and flora remind of it, and especially south georgia is comparable to the antarctic peninsula.
