For the first time, South Georgia Heritage Trust and Friends of South Georgia Island are taking part in Giving Tuesday on November 30th. This day of global giving inspires people to support the causes that mean the most to them.
Our work on South Georgia is dedicated to protecting this hugely important ecosystem, the species that call it home, and its rich cultural heritage.

Right now, we are raising funds for a critical survey of the former whaling station at Stromness. This study will inform major environmental and heritage conservation work that we will be undertaking over the next five years.
We work in partnership to support other science and technology initiatives to make informed decisions about conservation. We are working to protect globally endangered Albatross species in conjunction with RSPB and British Antarctic Survey (BAS).

Just this month, BAS research we support is also clearly showing a strong recovery and return of Humpback whales to the waters of South Georgia and Antarctica. The return of some whale species to almost pre-whaling levels marks a profound shift in the human story of South Georgia Island. SGHT is marking this change in an important, first-ever, commissioned work of art for the Island by Scottish artist Michael Visocchi. This legacy we, too, hope you will consider being a part of.

Share your most memorable photo of South Georgia Island
It’s been almost two years since visitors have come to the Island.

As we welcome visitors returning to South Georgia hopefully next year, we also hope you can help us on Giving Tuesday.

If you have visited South Georgia previously, could you consider sharing with us your most memorable photo of the Island and tell us why that is?

Please Email: with your photo and a wee description. We'll also be happy to answer questions sent to that address.

Submissions may be shared on SGHT, FOSGI, and third party social media and websites, in the run-up to Giving Tuesday, on the day, and beyond, to show why our work, your support and South Georgia is so special…and hopefully it will encourage others to give too.
More detail about some of our projects and plans will be shared on social media in the coming weeks.  

And on Giving Tuesday, or any other day, if you can consider making a donation to support our work, we would be very grateful indeed.
