Unique South Georgia – preserving its history, restoring its environment

The sub-antarctic island of South Georgia is a unique place positioned in the Southern Ocean; it is one of nature’s paradises and yet it is also rich with historical heritage.

The South Georgia Heritage Trust (SGHT) aims to work with all who wish to preserve the island’s natural and historical heritage for future generations – to redress the damage to its environment done in the past, and to preserve the human heritage of the island which so clearly shows the best and worst of humanity.

The groundbreaking SGHT Habitat Restoration Project will save native birds from extinction and increase by millions the numbers of endangered seabirds on South Georgia.

Help us to preserve the island’s past and to create a better future for South Georgia’s wildlife.
Please make a donation to SGHT today.

Cute animal day! Hey, it’s Wednesday and we all need a smile 😊. This polar trip presented such great opportunity to watch life unfold in front of me. Play, birth, rest, struggle... if I was quiet and was respectful, these beautiful creatures allowed me to peek into their world. 🙏. These sweet faces really prove to me how innocent and sweet all creatures are at heart ❤️ - including us.

SGHT and FOSGI are supporting this fantastic project to protect South Georgia's albatrosses. 😍Bird Island will be the home of our #AlbatrossStories
The Island is a part of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Isles, a UK Overseas Territory. It is incredibly rich in wildlife, home to four species of Albatross as well as over 50,000 breeding pairs of penguins and thousands of fur seals too.
It is an important research station for scientists studying seabirds and seals. Ten scientists can live on the island, and they must brave freezing temperatures and antarctic storms during their time here.
Our albatross live life on the edge on Bird Island, enduring gale-force winds and freezing snow. Join us as we see how they cope in their extreme home as they raise their chicks.
