The South Georgia Association was formed in 2001 to give voice to those who care for South Georgia. South Georgia is a remote mountainous island of exceptional natural beauty in the Southern Atlantic, with abundant wildlife both on the island and in the surrounding ocean. Uninhabited apart from two small research stations, a summer Museum, and a few government employees, it is an unspoilt wilderness with a fascinating heritage that is nonetheless environmentally vulnerable.
The Association has several hundred members from all walks of life. Many have worked on the island as scientists, government employees or whalers; others have visited on climbing expeditions and from cruise ships. Some have never had the opportunity to visit, but share a passion for the island nonetheless.
