Falkland Islands
United Kingdom

Carcass Panoramic 0897 0896

population 3,060; area 12,173 km2; density 0.25 people/km2

The Falkland Islands are a group of two main islands and 776 smaller islands in the South Atlantic Ocean, 480 km from the coast of Argentina. The islands are a self-governing Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, but have been the subject of a claim to sovereignty by Argentina since the re-establishment of British rule in 1833. In an area roughly the size of Connecticut or Northern Ireland there are 3,000 people and 583,000 sheep.
