Since the beginning of 2022, the increasing intensity of highly pathogenic avian influenza outbreaks has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of seabirds in the Northern Hemisphere, around the Atlantic, Pacific Ocean and Southern Africa.
It is possible that avian influenza will arrive in the Falkland Islands, with migratory birds as the most probable vectors. Migrant birds returning to the Islands and mixing with local wild birds could transmit the virus, this coincides with the arrival of penguins and other seabirds for the breeding season. It is also possible for avian influenza to be introduced to the Islands through visitors clothing and outdoor equipment entering the Islands.
