Perhaps the most beautiful and important


New Island is one of the most remote and spectacular islands in the Falkland Islands archipelago.

Located in the far south west of the archipelago, the island’s stunning scenery is matched by an extraordinary range of wildlife, from sea lions to black-browed albatross, from the world’s largest colony of thin-billed prions to the incorrigibly inquisitive “Johnny Rook” – plus penguins, of course.

The island has, until recently, been owned and managed by the New Island Conservation Trust, set up in 1995 by Falklands-based conservationist Ian Strange MBE. Since then, the island has been run as a wildlife reserve and a centre for scientific research. From the 1st July 2020, the New Island Conservation Trust merged with Falklands Conservation, a larger conservation charity based in the Falkland Islands, and the management of this incredible site is now overseen by Falklands Conservation (incorporating the New Island Conservation Trust).
