Bar none, the Falkland Islands are the single best island destination for wildlife photography. Located off the eastern coast of Argentina, this British territory hosts five different species of penguins, countless birds, elephant seals, sea lions, orcas and whales. Most animals are readily accessible, especially on Sea Lion Island, where animal/human interaction is as easy as walking into the middle of 1,000 penguins, holding still, and waiting for them to surround you. The gentoo penguins are not shy, so don’t be surprised if you feel something pecking at your shoelaces. Other notable islands include Saunders, where you’ll find a massive population of black-browed albatrosses; Bleaker Island, home to the king cormorant and rockhopper penguins; and East Falkland, where you’ll get to shoot the king penguin rookery complete with fuzzy baby birds.
