Steeple Jason Island is a small island west of Grand Jason Island, part of the Jason Islands that are, in turn, part of thed Falkland Island in the South Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the "Islas los Salvajes" in Spanish. The islands are uninhabited nature reserves. Generally inhabited over the years, Steeple Jason was used for sheep grazing up until the 1980s, and there are the remains of a disused shearing shed on the island, The island is important for being home to one of the largest colonies of black-browed albatrosses in the world. The albatrosses have been declining recently, with many experts blaming long-line fisheries.

Half of Steeple Jason's 790 hectares is taken up by a colony of around 157,000 breeding pairs of black-browed albatrosses. This is almost one-third of the global population. There is a smaller colony of 52,700 pairs on Grand Jason. The birds have a wingspan of up to 2.4m, and lay single eggs in October. They are known to live up to at least 30 years of age. Grand Jason and Steeple Jason Island, were bought by New York City philanthropist Michael Steinhardt in the 1990s, who later donated them to the Bronx Zoo based Wildlife Conservation Society.

Other birds on the Jasons include gentoo and Magellanic penguins, thin-billed prions, striated caracaras, tussac birds and black-throated finches. The islands are also home to several hundred thousand pairs of rockhopper penguins and several hundred pairs of southern giant petrels. On Steeple Jason there are the rusting remains of pots which were once used for rendering down penguins for their oil. Large beds of kelp surround the island, and the land is covered in grasses common to the other Falkland Islands, such as tussac grass.
