Information About French Southern and Antarctic Lands

Terres Australes et Antarctiques Françaises consists of five districts: Îles Kerguelen, Île Amsterdam and Île Saint–Paul; Îles Crozet, District de Terre Adélie and the Scattered Islands in the Indian Ocean.

Île Amsterdam and Île Saint–Paul are both volcanic islands. They contain no permanent inhabitants and are visited only by researchers studying the native fauna.

The Antarctic portion consists of Terre–Adélie, also referred to Adélie Land or Adélie Coast, a thin slice of the Antarctic continent discovered and claimed by the French in 1840. Currently, the USA does not recognize the French claim to Terre–Adélie.
