Island Wide Census

Monitoring populations is vitally important for determining and tracking the conservation status of Falkland Islands’ species. It is also crucial in helping to identify key factors influencing population trends. Falklands Conservation has carried out Island-wide censuses of Falklands’ wildlife for many years. These censuses vary in their complexity, but in the Falklands, with over 700 different Islands, the logistics of delivering them mean they are usually very challenging. Recently there have been increasing moves to aerial surveying and development of satellite imagery counting techniques, but for some species it is simply necessary to get to work on the ground!
