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.
