The writer Niall Griffiths has described St Helena’s isolation as “extreme, and thrilling” in a brief article for National Geographic magazine.
He comments on the island’s natural wonders in an article that will be seen by the magazine’s global readership:
“With one step I traversed 80% of the planet’s entire species of tooth-tongued fern. That’s an odd and heavy sensation, to know that, with one stumble or misplaced step, I could’ve committed botanic genocide.”
He also describes watching a baby dolphin struggling to leap up from the sea around the RMS St Helena.
