Fractures to Antarctic iceberg reduce risk to South Georgia wildlife
Unclear if iceberg will hit small British territory but researchers more optimistic about threat to ecosystem
A giant iceberg, heading for the island of South Georgia, is continuing to fracture into smaller pieces, meaning it poses less of a threat to the island’s wildlife and ecosystem.
The Antarctic iceberg, which has been moving towards the island group, has fractured into four parts. Although it is still unclear if the iceberg will collide with the small British territory, researchers are more optimistic about the risk it poses to local wildlife.
