Encyclopedia > Jason Islands

The Jason Islands are an archipelago in the Falkland Islands, lying north west of the main island group, and about 250 miles east of Argentina. None of the islands has ever been inhabited, but until the 1980s they were used for grazing sheep. They are now run as a nature reserve, and a previous owner once issued some now sought-after banknotes in their name.

The islands include Steeple Island, Grand Island, Elephant Island , Flat Island and South Island.

The Jason Islands are the main stronghold of the striated caracara, while other wildlife includes albatrosses and Antarctic skuas.
