Tristan da Cunha

Tristan da Cunha is the most remote inhabited island in the world. It is home to around 250 people, who earn their living from fishing for gourmet-quality lobster exported to Australasia, the USA and Europe; farming, handicrafts, conservation work and the sale to collectors of postage stamps and souvenir coins. Other islands in the Tristan Archipelago are uninhabited: two (Gough Island and Inaccessible Island) form a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Nightingale Island, Stoltenhoff and Alex (or Middle) Island also have globally significant biodiversity.
