Travel with Respect

Since the population has British roots, customs tend to follow those of the United Kingdom, although in many ways the islanders are more conservative than Britain. Drugs are not tolerated, and travelers should be aware that among some residents there is still a mistrust of Argentines stemming from the 1982 conflict.In addition to the above concerns, there exists a Country Code that should be followed by visitors to the islands: Always ask permission before entering private land. Keep to paths wherever possible. Leave gates open or shut as you found them. Be aware of the high fire risk throughout the Islands. Be extremely careful when smoking not to start fires. Take cigarette butts away with you. Do not litter; take your trash home with you. Do not disfigure rocks or buildings. Do not touch, handle, injure or kill any wild bird or other wild animal. Never feed any wild animals. Always give animals the right of way. Remember not to block the routes of seabirds and seals coming ashore to their colonies. Try to prevent any undue disturbance to wild animals. Stay on the outside of bird and seal colonies. Remain at least six meters (twenty feet) away. When taking photographs or filming stay low to the ground. Move slowly and quietly. Do not startle or chase wildlife from resting or breeding areas. Some plants are protected and should not be picked. Whalebones, skulls, eggs or other such items may not be exported from the Falklands.

Travel Safe

Crime is relatively unknown in the Falklands, although one should still take the normal precautions of not leaving items unattended or traveling alone late at night. If problems are encountered the police force should be helpful.Unexploded ordinances from the 1982 conflict, including land mines, are still found in the islands. While it is highly unlikely that a visitor will encounter one, if found it should (obviously) not be touched and the proper authorities should be notified. It is worth noting that no civilians have been harmed by landmines since the conflict ended.Many animals in the islands can be dangerous when cornered or with young. Elephant seals, sea lions and fur seals are probably the most dangerous; keep a safe distance when viewing these animals. A general rule is that if the animal seems to notice your presence, you are too close.The Falklands, being located at a far southern latitude, may be affected by the Antarctic ozone hole from August until December. During this time be sure to wear sunscreen on sunny days, as the risk of sunburn is increased significantly. During other months of the year the ozone hole shrinks and the danger from the sun is not significantly greater than anywhere else on the planet.
