This lavishly produced, spiral-bound publication is packed with beautiful photographs, maps, tables, statistics and report and is a most welcome addition to the bibliography of the islands. Our results are intended to help inform the Tristan Government about potential protection schemes that protect both important fisheries and unique biodiversity of the archipelago, Benefits to the scientific community and the Tristan Government. First thing, Paul Rose explained to the children what the project was all about and showed some of the amazing footage they had taken underwater and above water on Tristan, Inaccessible, Nightingale and Gough Island. Then it was time to go aboard the Grenville.

If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. Jenny explained how even though we can't see it, sometimes there are tiny pieces of plastic in the water that can harm our environment.

It was a decidedly odd feeling to be one moment surfing down 12-foot following seas and then in the next moment to be silently adrift, the ship slowing and then lurching sideways onto the the waves and rolling heavily. Some filming will be done via small drone. Nathan Lefevre; Underwater camera assistant; National Geographic.

As you know they have left with a really positive image of the island and islanders, That is down to you and it is a good thing for Tristan, We now have some new friends to help take us forward to 2020 and our vision to declare some form of Marine Protected Area/Reserve to ensure that the Tristan environment is preserved for generations to come and managed the way Tristanians want to manage it.

Hosted by the National Geographic Society and the RSPB, the evening's MC was Paul Rose, leader of the Pristine Seas Expedition to Tristan da Cunha held in January and February 2017. Also attending were Councillors and the Conservation and Fisheries Departments. The Forecast is based on the GFS model.

Blue sharks (Prionace glauca) are one of the great ocean wanderers. Dave, the diving medical officer, showed everyone the ship's own personal decompression chamber which is there to make sure the divers stayed healthy due to doing so many dives a day.

Tristan Administrator Sean Burns addresses the gathering. Our compressor system is commissioned and is pumping nitrox mix for the divers. Many sequences were taken under water and the whole showcased the amazing land and sea scientific work carried out by the expedition team. Ryan Jenkinson catches a wave. Rockhopper penguins at Nightingale Island. Everyone really enjoyed this and was amazed at the beautiful footage. After an exciting passage Gough Island makes a dramatic and welcome appearance. And so two days ago, when the wind quickly shifted, it was a lively time collecting Mike Fay from his Tristan botanical trek, the RSPB team from their beloved birds, the media team from filming the local fishermen, and the science team from their dives—all while making our ship ready for the passage.

We are also carefully choosing the lunch food we will bring ashore—we cannot carry anything that has seeds such as apples, tomatoes, dried figs, etc., Gough and Inaccessible Islands World Heritage Site, St Mary's School pupils with Pristine Team members aboard SVS Grenville. GPSs are initialised, VHF radios are charged, and the Inmarsat system is up.

There are introduced house mice on Gough, which have developed a taste for flesh and now kill and eat an estimated 600,000 seabird chicks every year.

Tristan da Cunha really is one of the key global hotspots of life—there is a most wonderful sense of the power of nature in this perfectly balanced ecosystem.

More photos of the day aboard SVS Grenville. During this expedition by far the most prevalent species we have encountered on the footage is the blue shark. There was another golf match that afternoon for those who couldn't make it in the morning, and many enjoyed lots of delicious sandwiches and cakes at Café da Cunha.

The Tristan Government is very excited about this new partnership, and if you would like to hear more as the work unfolds, the Tristan Website will have a dedicated page on the expedition as it takes place. A tagged adult female blue shark swims away; this tagging will allow the science team to learn more about movements of the sharks around Tristan waters. Twenty Team members with names: role: and their institution. I couldn’t help but notice that when the tags came out on deck, the albatrosses seemed to give them a highly suspicious glance.

Our work will aid Tristan islanders in ongoing conservation work throughout the island group and in the future management of their crucial Tristan rock lobster fishery as well as other potential fisheries that the community may become more dependent upon in future. Gough Island, 225 miles to southwest of the main island of Tristan, had an almost mythical quality in our expedition planning: It’s hard to reach, hard to land on, and there is very little shelter because the winds are so strong that they whip completely around the island—and yet we absolutely had to get to Gough. The excellent on-board engineering team only took two hours to drain the water and make repairs—but that was a long enough time wallowing around dead in the water to give us a little taste of the real power of the ocean. Primary goals of the expedition are to conduct comprehensive quantitative surveys of the health of its largely unknown marine environment, and produce a documentary film to highlight this unique ecosystem and its people.

The Tristan albatross chicks, which are strong enough to survive on their pedestal nests through the gales and snowstorms of winter, are attacked where they sit by the carnivorous mice. Jenn Caselle; Chief Scientist; Marine Science Institute, University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). From 60 miles away we could see the summit of the island soaring above the clouds. Everyone is now looking forward to September when they return to show the full length film of the Tristan Islands Expedition.

Our work will complement ongoing research at Tristan da Cunha and we will share our data with all islanders as well as research partners currently conducting work on the islands. We will also use satellite tags to examine movement of apex predators such as sharks and tunas. Photo by Brian Canavan. Also luckily the weather was pleasant enough for guides Simons Glass and Riaan Repetto to take a few people to Queens Mary's Peak. At the Friday presentation, National Geographic donated a lovely atlas to the school and all the islanders received a Nat Geo cap.

We will provide new data on micro-plastics in the waters around Tristan da Cunha archipelago. It was also fitting that the Tristan community was set at the heart of the film, with Heads of Department Dawn Repetto (Tourism), James Glass (Fisheries) and Trevor Glass (Conservation) joining Chief Islander Ian Lavarello in being interviewed to promote the island as it seeks a sustainable future in harmony with its special environment, now recognised by the Gough and Inaccessible Islands World Heritage Sites.
