Prion Island is known as a nesting site for many Wandering Albatross. As a result of this, the government of South Georgia has put special protocols in place to protect these special birds. Only small groups are allowed on the island at a time & you must stay on the boardwalk they built for this purpose. This soon to fledge youngster’s nest was right beside the boardwalk!
