From Waddell to Saunders Island

Before landing in Port Stanely, the Oosterschelde toured outer islands in the Falklands archipelago.  First stop: desolate and sparsely populated Waddell Island.

Sheep grazing has hardly been a boon to the environment in the Falklands, and perhaps kelp farming could be a sustainable alternative.
