Join Sammy, the rodent detector dog, as he sniffs around the Falkland Islands for rats!

Rodents were introduced to the Falklands by man and cause problems for ground-nesting birds. In recent years efforts have been made to stop the spread of rodents to islands they haven't reached and to eradicate them from islands they have colonized.  

Great and Tickle islands were eradicated in 2016 and to confirm their status as rodent-free, Samurai took a trip out with his handler.

Members of the South Georgia Right Whale Project share their experience of working in the antarctic. 

The project is a dedicated population survey of southern right whales, in their feeding grounds off South Georgia, since whaling ceased in the 1970s. The scientists aim to find out how many southern right whales use these waters and where and what they are feeding on. They are also measuring the genetic diversity and health status of the population. The surveys use advanced acoustics to locate whales. The team then take photographs for photo-identification, collect skin samples, and attach satellite tags to identify and track them.

The first World Albatross Day was celebrated this year to honour these birds and highlight the conservation crisis they face.

The Falkland Islands is home to around 70% of the world's population of black browed albatross and in the late 90s, the species was in decline. Today, the population is stable with around 500,000 breeding pairs. What has the Falkland Islands done to achieve that?

This documentary highlights the action and collaboration between government, researchers, and the fishing industry that has branded the species a conservation success.
