"It has been 40 years since the liberation of the Falkland Islands by the UK Armed Forces and many in the UK will solely know of this Overseas Territory because of these events in 1982, and will be unaware of the unique wildlife and character of the Falklands or the rapid progress and development the Falklands has experienced since the war. Learn more about the Falklands and what we are doing to protect our environment, fight climate change, drive scientific research, act as a gateway to Antarctica and promote the UK's values and interests in the South Atlantic."
