Sea Lion Lodge is working hard to improve its environmental sustainability for the benefit of the Island and our guests. The Lodge is a corporate member of Falklands Conservation and works in close collaboration arranging annual tussac planting weekends. Since 2013, 17 hectares (42 acres) of tussac grass have been planted. Healthy stands of tussac grass are important carbon sinks, and protecting and increasing Sea Lion Island’s tussac grass helps to offset the carbon footprint of running the Lodge.

The renewable energy capacity is increasing, alongside an existing wind turbine and solar water heating system, new solar panels were erected in September 2018 which are capable of generating up to 4 kw of electricity. Our water is pumped with very little energy cost from a fresh spring located near to the Lodge and all the lighting in the Lodge is low-energy. Where possible we source food products organically and sustainably from within the Falklands. All organic waste is composted and used for the Lodge’s garden.

Sea Lion Lodge supports the long-term monitoring carried out by resident scientists of the Elephant Seal Research Group, and since 2009, an Environmental Management Plan has been in place to guide conservation and research, including on-going environmental monitoring and practising good biosecurity.
