South Georgia Island holds a special place in my heart, having visited it for the first time last year and with its deep ties to the story of Ernest Shackleton. But, it has an amazing story of its own. A story of resiliency and the return of life. At one point, man had done what was thought to be irreparably damage to the island’s ecosystem, but now the indigenous creatures that exist there have returned in astounding numbers with thousands of penguins, seals, and albatross located across the island, while whales –– once hunted to near-extinction –– now prowl off its coasts once again. It is a great success story that you can learn a lot more about in the video below.
