  Destination - SubAntarctic Islands: Prince Edward and the Pack Ice


These British islands are home to six endemic landbirds, including the world's smallest flightless bird, and 22 species of breeding seabirds. Four seabird species breed nowhere else. Inaccessible Rail, Gough Moorhen, Tristan Thrush, Gough Bunting, Tristan Bunting and Wilkins' Bunting are endemic to the islands.

Tristan Albatross, Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross, Atlantic Petrel and Spectacled Petrel only breed at these islands, but range more widely through the South Atlantic Ocean. This is the easiest place in the region to see Northern Rockhopper Penguin and White-faced and White-bellied Storm Petrels.
