Steeple Jason Island viewed from the M/V Polar Star.  Steeple Jason is one of the remote Jason Group of Islands in the West Falklands.  Two large mounds of tussock grass, common throughout the Falkland Islands, are seen. Uninhabited, the island is spectacular both for its rugged scenery and its enormous breeding colony of black-browed albatross.  Steeple Jason Island is now owned and administered by the Wildlife Conservation Society
