Standing almost alone in the great Southern Ocean, South Georgia is a majestic, barren, and remote land. Yet in the spring and summer months, this small island plays host to some of the largest concentrations of animals anywhere on Earth. Survival Island is a story of these vast animal cities–penguins, albatrosses, fur seals, and elephant seals–and of the order that lies beneath their seeming chaos.
