    National Geographic apologizes for publishing Malvinas pictures as from the Falklands

    Last January it was announced that National Geographic February 2018 would document the Falkland Islands' diverse ecosystem by wildlife photographer Paul Nicklen.

    National Geographic has apologized to Tierra del Fuego governor Rosana Bertone for publishing in Instagram pictures identified as taken in the Falklands, instead of the Malvinas Islands. According to Ushuaia reports, aware of this situation, the Environment Secretary of Tierra del Fuego Mauro Pérez Toscani, on instructions from Ms Bertone addressed the National Geographic Foundation to express disappointment and demaning rectification of the Malvinas controversy.
