Modern Explorer | South Georgia's Dark History

Humans can have a big impact on their surroundings. On the island of South Georgia that impact came in the form of mismanaging resources and a lack of scientific understanding. However, like so many other natural places, South Georgia has found a way to adapt and bounce back. Join National Geographic Explorer Alizé Carrère as she learns about South Georgia's dark past and its very bright future on this episode of Modern Explorer!
