BLEAKER ISLAND (Falklands)
BLEAKER ISLAND (Falklands)

At the entrance to East Falkland’s Adventure Sound, the long and thin, low-lying Bleaker Island was first known as Long Island and then became Breaker Island before receiving its actual name. For over 100 years the island has been used as a sheep farm which now has some Hereford cattle as well. Despite the modern day farming, the island is an Important Bird Area and has an impressive Imperial Cormorant colony of over 8,000 pairs. View more

Gentoo Penguins can be found at the northern end of Sandy Bay on the aptly named Penguin Hill, Southern Rockhopper Penguins are found closer to the settlement at Long Gulch. A hiking route connects both colonies. Magellanic Penguins and their burrows can be found across the island. 47 species of birds are known to breed on the island and neighboring islets and southern sea lions are often seen hauling out on the southern shores.
