Carcass Island in the Falkland Islands

Gentoo Penguins – Magellanic Penguins – South Polar Skuas – Upland/Magellan Geese

Why is this island called Carcass Island? Well it has nothing to do with this photo! The name comes from the ship HMS Carcass, which surveyed the island in 1766.

Many adorable Gentoo Penguins
