Cooper Bay, Cooper Sound, and Cooper Island

Named after Robert Palliser Cooper, a lieutenant on James Cook’s HMS Resolution, Cooper Island is also where Cooper Bay gets its name. This small bay lies southwest of Cape Vahsel and is separated from Cooper Island by (you guessed it) Cooper Sound.

The wildlife and vegetation of Cooper Bay

Black-browed albatrosses, Antarctic prions, and other seabirds can be seen at Cooper Bay as well as numerous Antarctic fur seals. Tussock grasses grow abundantly here, too, providing an excellent habitat for seabirds. You should be able to see Cooper Island from a distance, as its highest point is 416 meters (1,365 feet) above sea level and often dusted with snow.
