Named by Christopher Columbus after the virgin followers of St Ursula, and purchased in gold coin from Denmark by the United States in 1917, the U.S. Virgin Islands are known for their white sand beaches, coral reefs, and rum distilleries. Sheena Hudson recently spent time exploring this fascinating group of islands in the Caribbean by foot, kayak and snorkel.
In March, three new marine reserves around Campbell, Bounty, and Antipodes Islands were opened by Conservation Minister Nick Smith. ONE News reporter Renée Graham voyaged south on board HMNZS Wellington to do some feature stories. She visited the world’s largest colony of southern royal albatrosses on Campbell Island and had a close encounter with territorial bull sea lions. A presentation not to be missed!
