Steeple Jason harbours what is, by a long way, the largest albatross colony in the Southern Ocean. Around 200,000 pairs of black-browed albatrosses nest there, plus tens of thousands of penguins and several petrel species, including giant petrels.
The island is located at the northwest corner of the Falklands/Malvinas. It is uninhabited and belongs to the Wildlife Conservation Society. There is a small research station that is used only a few weeks per year.
