Kidney Island

About

Named for its shape, Kidney Island is located just a few miles from Stanley, the Islands’ capital. It is a National Nature Reserve and an Important Bird Area, a global standard set by Birdlife International. The island is almost entirely covered in tussac grass which in places is 3m (10 feet) tall. Birdlife includes Magellanic and Rockhopper penguins, Cobb’s wren and tussac birds. One of the most spectacular experiences is as dusk falls when thousands of sooty shearwaters return to their nests.

Permission is needed to visit the island which is only accessible by boat, with an approved guide.
