The Bounty Islands are a small group of 13 uninhabited granite islets and numerous rocks, with a combined area of 135 ha (330 acres), in the south Pacific Ocean that are territorially part of New Zealand. It lies about 670 km (416 mi) east-south-east of the South Island of New Zealand, and 530 km south-west of the Chatham Islands. The group is a World Heritage Site.
The Bounty Islands were discovered by Captain William Bligh in 1788 and named after his ship, HMS Bounty, just months before the famous mutiny. During the 19th century, they were a popular hunting ground for sealers.
The Bounty group has been identified as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by BirdLife International because of its significance as a breeding site for Erect-crested Penguins, Salvin's Albatrosses and Bounty Shags.
