Elephant Jason is one of the Jason Islands in the north west Falkland Islands.[1] In Spanish, it is considered one of the "Islas las Llaves" (eastern, Seal Rocks and North Fur Island);[2] such a distinction does not exist in English between the two groups of the islands. It is named for the elephant seal.
