view from bridges island to "isla de lobos " ( island sea lion ) island in beagle channel. wildlife in beagle channel are rich in birds and marine mammals, fish and diverse invertebrates.
the original inhabitants of the isla bridges were the yamana, a nomadic tribe that moved between the islands by canoe. the yamana developed a natural resistance against the sub-antarctic climate by smearing their bodies with seal oil which may have been the reason why their body temperature was 1 degree higher than humans today. the region was named " tierra del fuego" (the land of fire) by the early european explorers who saw the dotted yamana camp fires on the islands throughout the beagle channel.

We know you love quokkas, but there’s more to @rottnestislandwa in @westernaustralia than its famous furry residents! we're referring to the 83 beautiful beaches and bays that can be found dotted around the coastline, each one unique in its own way, and all of them absolutely postcard-perfect. some of the most popular spots that are not to be missed include the basin, little parakeet bay, geordie bay and little salmon bay. you’re welcome 😉 photo: @jasonnesbitt#rottnestisland#justanotherdayinwa#nature#travel#island
