South Georgia is an island over 1500 miles away from the Antarctic Peninsula. It is the location for two research facilities. The King Edward Point research facility is conducting Applied Fisheries Research on behalf of the Government of South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands. The Bird Island research facility is conducting population biology, ecosystem dynamics and behavior of seabirds and seals. From their inception both research facilities have been occupied sporadically. However, they are now being manned on a continuous basis. Though most of Antarctica is covered in snow, you may be surprised to actually see green grass grow on the hillsides of this island.
