Tristan da Cunha is a group of islands located in the southern Atlantic Ocean, between the continents of Africa and South America. The main island of the group is known also as Tristan da Cunha and is often considered to be the world’s most remote inhabited island. Just 269 people live on this isolated wildlife haven.
Due to the remoteness of the islands, their ecosystems have been largely preserved from human disruption, allowing wildlife to thrive. Two of the islands have been designated as wildlife reserves and have been inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
