Voyage to the other side of the globe with Nat Geo Explorers-in-Residence Dr. Enric Sala and Dr. Michael Fay. Last spring, they explored the remote islands of the Pitcairn Archipelago, made famous by the H.M.S. Bounty mutineers. Sala’s marine team conducted 384 dives, spending 450 person-hours underwater. They discovered pristine reefs formed by pale blue rose-like corals and watched schools of sharks moving elegantly, like synchronized swimmers. Mike Fay walked the islands, meanwhile, cataloging wildlife and trading stories with the small community of Pitcairners who make the far-flung South Pacific their home.
