Kidney Cove, Falkland Islands

A colony of gentoo penguins rest on a minefield at Kidney Cove, at stretch of beach across the Falklands Islands' capital Stanley, September 9, 2005. Some of 25,000 land mines were laid on the islands mostly by Argentine forces in the 1982 war with Britain. Falklands wildlife chooses to nest and rest in these protected minefields, previously trampled by people or overgrazed by sheep. It is the bright side of a land mine problem that is likely to remain, de-mining is difficult, if not impossible, in the peaty soils and shifting sands of this South Atlantic archipielago renowned for its wildlife.
