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.

Timeline PhotosThe snow is melting, the pipits are singing; looks like spring has sprung on Bird Island 🌞 And that can only mean one thing... the grey-heads are back from their travels!

After being away from home for up to *7 years* (🤯) and travelling hundreds of thousands of kilometres, these albatross have earned themselves a well-deserved break. It's a different story for our team of dedicated researchers on Bird Island who will be keeping their eyes peeled, making sure they don't miss any of the returning globe-trotters.

This cohort may be home safe & sound, but there are still plenty of grey-heads out and about. Skylander is lost-in-training with Tokyo 2020 right around the corner, whilst Bobby’s cohort are edging their way to the warmer climes of Australia & New Zealand! Want to see what these worldies are getting up to while they're away? Make sure to stay up-to-date using the BAS grey-headed albatross tracker 🌎 www.bas.ac.uk/project/grey-headed-albatross-juvenile-tracking/
