Bounty Islands ecosystem
In spite of their small size (largest island is 700 m across and total area of islands is 135 ha) on these barren cliffs live several endemic animals – birds, spiders, beetles and other insects. Here live up to 115,000 pairs of erect-crested penguins (Eudyptes sclateri) and 60,000 Salvin’s Albatrosses (Thalassarche salvini).
