South Georgia Island is home to the largest population of Southern Elephant Seals, hosting more than half of the world’s inhabitants. Other notable colonies are found at Macquarie Island, Heard Island, the Falkland and the Kerguelen Islands, and at widespread islands near the Antarctic Peninsula.

The Elephant Seal’s torpedo shape accounts for their swimming and diving prowess that enables them to swim enormous distances through the Southern Ocean. They spend up to 10 months at sea, migrating anywhere from sub-Antarctic waters to nearly as far north as the Tropic of Capricorn in search of food, returning annually to the same place for breeding, birthing and moulting.
