Social Conventions

As an Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, the lifestyle of the Falklands is very similar to small villages in England and Scotland and the islanders are British citizens. Nature conservation is important on the islands and it is vital that visitors respect the environment as well as the animals. Rules have been put in place to protect wildlife and failure to comply with these rules may result in fines.



English is the official language of the Falkland Islands.



The majority of the population of the Falkland Islands are Christian. Denominations such as Catholic, Anglican and the United Reformed Church of Stanley exist.
