Yalour Islands, Antarctica

The Yalour Islands are located east of the Argentine Islands in Penola Strait. They were discovered and named by Charcot’s French Antarctic Expedition of 1903-5. The low-lying islands are scattered over a distance of 2.4 km (1.5 mi) and are home to over 8,000 breeding pairs of Adélie penguins, spread among 13 colonies.
