...Amazing of the last true untouched wildernesses on the planet....but also sadly enough in the top 10 of most endangered places in the world...with the whole back of the card scanned to show all the stamps and beautiful cancellations...¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Big thanks to Corentin, Julien and Manu!!

The French Southern and Antarctic Lands (TAAF) are an overseas territory which has been created in 1955 and which comprises the Crozet and Kerguelen archipelagos, the islands of Saint-Paul and Amsterdam, the Adélie Land on the Antarctic continent, and, since 2007, the Scattered Islands (Europa, Glorieuses, Juan de Nova, Bassas da India and Tromelin).

The TAAF are not part of the European Union, but do enjoy a special status as an associated Overseas Country and Territory (OCT).

The territory has no permanent civilian population. Those resident consist of visiting military personnel, officials, scientific researchers and support staff.
