Bob Burton

Bob BurtonGSGSSI was very saddened to hear of the passing of Robert (Bob) Burton last Saturday, 15th January. Bob had an association with the island spanning over seven decades having first visited in 1964 and in 2018 received the Morag Husband Campbell Medal from the South Georgia Association in recognition of his lifelong contribution to the island. Bob’s passion, advocacy and expert knowledge of South Georgia’s wildlife and history will be greatly missed and our thoughts go out to his family and friends.

A full obituary is currently being written by the South Georgia association which we will link to once it has been published.
