Falkland Islands

name "Maynard" Conservation 2009 was a good year for this species as it was upgraded to a status of Least Concern from Near Threatened, by the IUCN. This downgrade is not as optimistic as it sounds as it is not so much due to a recovering population, but a clearer picture and more accurate censuses. IUCN (2009) Overall population trends show that in the 1980s there were 38,000 pair which dropped to 31,000 in the late 1990s followed by 46,800 presently. The Falkland Islands and most of the South Georgia Archipelago has shown increases from the 1980s to the present. Terre Adélie has shown a drastic reduction as the count fell to 10—15 pairs from 80 pairs in the 1980s. The official 10 3 generation trend is listed by BirdLife International at a 1%—9% declinatation, but it is stated that this is a conservative number. They elaborate that a best case scenario puts it at a 17% increase and a worst case scenario of a 7.2% reduction. Major threats to the well-being of this species start with the typical accidental deaths caused by longline fishing as well as trawl fishing near the Falkland Islands. Between 2,000 and 4,000 were killed in 1997—1998 due to illegal longline fishing. Also the numbers of Southern Elephant Seal, which is an important source of food as carrion, have been shrinking. Human disturbances have also adversely affected this bird. He was a leading advocate of the value of nautical surveying in relation to naval operations. His early career included service under Robert FitzRoy on the HMS Beagle during Charles Darwin's voyage of 1836, and Bartolomé Island in the Galapagos Islands was named after him. From 1842 to 1846 he commanded HMS Philomel (HMS Philomel (1842)) on the South American Station and surveyed the Falkland Islands. During the Crimean War he was sent by Sir Francis Beaufort, Hydrographer of the Navy, to the Baltic (Baltic Sea) to assist the fleet commanded by Sir Charles Napier (Charles John Napier). Sulivan, commanding the paddle steamer HMS Lightning (HMS Lightning (1823)), made many invaluable surveys and charts of the shallow waters in which the fleet had to operate, and led the bombardment ships into position during the capture of Bomarsund (Bomarsund, Åland). From 1856 to 1865 he was the naval professional member of the Board of Trade. He was promoted to Vice-Admiral in 1870, and Admiral in 1877. After Robert FitzRoy committed suicide in 1865, leaving his wife and daughter destitute, Sulivan convinced the British government to provide them with £3000, to which Charles Darwin contributed another £100 of his own money.
