Falklands Conservation (FC) has announced the launching of its new Darwin Plus-funded project for long-term restoration work on New Island Nature Reserve. New Island is one of the remotest islands in the Falklands archipelago, which runs a wildlife reserve and centre for scientific research, expected to considerably improve with the appointment of a new Bio-security and Invasives Manager.

    The Islanders have finally acknowledged they need to go back to Britain??! Seriously?
    Wow! A real “personal growth moment” If I ever saw one!

    The invasive species was evicted in 1982 and will never be allowed to sprout up in the Falklands again,

    Really you think? That doesn't sound right to me, when it is the British who are forcing themselves into an area of the world that is all about Spain and Portugal, and all the Latin-American countries that came of that. Presently and Historically. The British are nothing but pretentious foreigners in this part of the world, who think the planet and all its resources are theirs to have at will and when they please.

    What utter garbage Trimonde, your view is utter and complete rubbish, but you already know that, and coming from someone with an Italian name makes you look even more foolish,
    indoctrination and brainwashing at its finest in Buenos Aires,

    Tirmonde's name is Patrick Edgar. He is from the U.S.

    The Argentines are the pretentious ones Pat, who think another people's land is theirs to have at will.

    The Falkland Islanders are pretty much the only non-invasive humans in South America, even the indigenous South Americans replaced others.

    Trimonstruosidades, you are the perfect example of a racist, torturing, genocidal wannabe Porteño. Like your white god Sarmiento said, “The Paraguayans should be killed in the womb.”
    You certainly seem to be cut from the same soiled cloth. How about getting out of Formosa, Chaco and Missiones provinces, Kurepi? Your program of exterminating Tupi speakers needs to be reversed “with prejudice” as they say...

    “... forcing themselves into an area of the world that is all about Spain and Portugal...”

    This phrase is most telling. It is as if the genocidal practices, mass enslavement, and religious persecutions practiced by the Iberic nations after their invasion should be glossed over and forgotten instead of denounced for the massive evil it really represents. Truly Trimonstruosidades
    is aptly named...

    You have finally shown your true hand. Your lust for the Falklands has nothing to do with Luis Vernet or 1833 but your belief that “Anglos” are inhabiting part of Latin America.

    Do you extend your hatred to the French in Guiana or the Dutch in Suriname or Aruba...or the various African-Americans across the Carribean?

    Do you mourn the loss of California or Texas to the Anglos?

    Or is it just the 3000 or so Falkland Islanders your racism extends to?

    Were they Italian or Chinese would your hatred be the same?

    Is it because, deep down, you know that the Anglos have done better in the New World than the Latinos?

    “Forcing themselves into an area of the world that is all about Spain and Portugal”

    Thanks for your own imperial view. “If I ruled the world” complex.
