SV visits Henderson Island


Henderson Island, Pitcairn (PN)
Henderson Island (formerly also San Juan Bautista and Elizabeth Island) is an uninhabited raised coral atoll in the south Pacific Ocean. It is one of the few atolls whose ecosystems have been relatively unaffected by human contact. Ten of its 51 flowering plants, all four of its land birds and about a third of the identified insects and gastropods are endemic: a remarkable diversity given the island's size.
