    I wonder if wildlife will not be tampered with if there's an oilspill. Not even the most stringent regulations can control this in the event of a strong tidewave, or rockwave of the kind that are not unusual in the area, or perhaps a fierce storm or gale. Oil exploration is good for the economy should it prove commercially viable, but it brings ecological risks that were not dreamt of years ago, especially in protected areas, such as the Falkland/Malvinas arcipelago. Keep a sharp eye on them, you residents, and hope for the best. Cheers!

    Argie (3)...what about the exploration of hydrocarbons in the Malvinas Basin in Argentine waters....shouldnt you pass your almighty judgement on that? Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego have similar wildlife to the Falklands. But of course being an Argentine you can only used twisted hypocritical logic. Hydrocarbon exploration is a risk anywhere in the world...youre focus on the Falklands is an attempt to discredit the Falklands attempts to secure its economic future when facing severe hostility from our neighbours is clouded by your and your country's imperialistic and colonial objectives.

    Peace and tranquillity in the desert land...
    I didn't know there was wildlife there, sorry.

    And I'm not from Argentina, but Uruguay, the football champion of the Sudamerica Copa!
