In response to South Georgia's dark history of excessive whaling and hunting, the island is now a protected area. What are your thoughts on the island's ability to bounce back?

We as humans have made mistakes all throughout our history but collectively, we have worked hard to fix those mistakes and learn from them. This is what makes us the greatest species on earth.

+Mikey V life cannot simply re-appear once we have destroyed it, that is an evolutionist fantasy. Furthermore it is a harmful fantasy because evolutionists regard extinction as "natural" and if we extinguish everything "it can just re-evolve and come back again later".

How could people who have absolutely no problem slaughtering hundreds of thousands of beautiful marine mammals build a church?? How could they think that killing so many of God's creatures was OK?? If you believe in a God who would accept the brutal slaughter of hundreds of thousands of whales to the brink of extinction to satisfy man's greed, you may want to find a new God.

This is exactly why in Australia we don’t eat whales. I ate one before in Japan as a school lunch. I didn’t want to. And I didn’t know it was a whale. I found out on the loud speaker, I felt ashamed. I told my teacher afterwards that I’m not allowed to eat whale. I don’t think she took me seriously. ;(

Sad part is now we're consuming so much oil and fuel that flubber and whale oil would never supply our demand

I can't believe that humanity from the past several years or 1920's did this, I wonder if they tried to think before they kill.

were pretty wild ,hunting and preying, the bird's rule their and thank the larger helecopter mice for controlling their inquisitive nature.,might be some way of observing this phenomenon.Grubs and fauna are also important,exploring the Earth is also slightly relevant. Victorian era biofuel industrialised decay is a lot iron for nutrients now.
