Falkland Islands - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Take a look at a world map. There are lots of places--lots of land, lots of water, right? Now pick somewhere on the map that's very far away. Pick a place that's a long way from anyplace else. You might pick something out in the ocean. It could be very far south or very far north. There's a place that's so far away, almost no one lives there. But there are a few people who call it home. This place is the Falkland Islands.
 
2     The Falkland Islands are very far south. The islands lie just to the east and far south of South America. They're not that far from Antarctica. And Antarctica is as far south as you can get! The Falkland Islands are made up of two main islands and many smaller islands. The capital of the Falkland Islands is a city named Stanley. The islands are owned by England, which is thousands of miles away. The islands are named for an important British man. This man was a navy officer named Viscount Falkland.
 
3     Only about 3,000 people live on the Falkland Islands. There are several reasons why the population is so small. One is that the islands themselves are small. But more important is the island's location. The islands are about 480 kilometers from South America, and a long way from the rest of the world. To get to the Falkland Islands, you need to fly or spend a long time in a boat. Many people don't like being that far away. Would you?
