The St Helena report and the gap in media

Niall tells the world about St Helena’s natural wonders

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.
