West Falkland is the second largest of the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic. It is a hilly island, separated from East Falkland by the Falkland Sound. The island has a population of fewer than 200 people, scattered around the coastline. The largest settlement is Port Howard on the east coast, which has an airstrip.
In 1867 there were no settlers on West Falkland, and the government issued a proclamation offering leases of grazing stations on very moderate terms. In 1868 all the available land was occupied. The major industry on the island is sheep farming, while it is also known for its penguin and cormorant colonies. Fishing is also popular in the two main rivers, the Warrah and the Chartres. West Falkland saw some activity during the Falklands War in 1982. Operation Canbelow took place to the west of the island and the raid on Pebble Island has gone down in British Special Forces history.
