The wild isles

Issue 22

In this issue: Explore Shetland and meet the locals, including orcas, gannets and puffins / Climb up Mount Beerenberg, the world’s northernmost volcano / Find out more about the North Atlantic loggerhead population / Join Steve Backshall on his expedition to the Eastern Pacific, in search of a fabled shark nursery / Marvel at Jaimen Hudson’s beautiful aerial imagery that depicts Western Australia’s raw nature



Shetland’s nutrient rich waters are home to a wealth of marine wildlife. Here, underwater photographer Henley Spiers meets charismatic orcas, clumsy puffins and courageous gannets.


One hundred years after explorers first summited the world’s northernmost volcano, Mount Beerenberg, on a speck of land in the North Atlantic Ocean, a set of adventurers and scientists follow in their footsteps.


Insights into the past, present and future of the North Atlantic loggerhead sea turtle population.


As part of the ‘Expedition’ project, presenter and naturalist Steve Backshall has spent the last four years exploring unknown parts of our planet. One of these expeditions led him to the Eastern Pacific, in search of a fabled shark nursery.


Jaimen Hudson’s stunning drone footage of marine life is known around the world. Having been confined to a wheelchair since a motorbike accident, his story is one of overcoming adversity and reconnecting with the ocean.
