  • Mysterious island is home to 60,000-year-old community - Sentinelese Tribe Kills Outsiders

    It may look like a typical island paradise - but be warned, because all is not as it seems in this mysterious landscape. The Indian Ocean island, which is about the size of Manhattan, has been inhabited by the indigenous Sentinelese for 60,000 years. The tribe have rejected the modern world and are violent to outsiders - killing two men in 2006 after they were fishing nearby their North Sentinel Island. They even go as far as to throw rocks and shoot arrows at planes or helicopters, and such is the hostility they show towards outsiders that only low-quality photos exist of the inhabitants. Indian authorities have gone as far as making it a crime to try to make contact with the Sentinelese. But while it is illegal to go within three miles of the island, that has not stopped some from ventu...

Very few people have ever been to these 13 crazy remote places it shocking how secluded these cities and towns actually are. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 4. Grise Fiord If you were ever looking on the globe or google earth at the islands in Northern Canada and wondered if people actually live there, the answer is yes and Grise Fiord is probably one the most shocking examples. Located within the Nunavut Territory of Canada, it’s certainly one of the coldest inhabited places on earth, with a yearly average temperature of -16.5 degrees C and the northernmost settlement in Canada. Not too surprisingly, the population here seems to be steadily declining and only houses 150 permanent residents. No connecting roads means the only way to connect to the outside world is by airplane. Due to the difficulty of getting products to this isolated community, prices are much higher for everyday items and it’s like this for much of the Nunavut Territory. In this photo we see a gallon of milk here priced at an outrageous 10 canadian dollars in the capital city of the Inuit Territory, Iqaluit 3. La Rinconada, Peru The highest permanent settlement in the world would be La Rinconada, located near the border of Bolivia in the Andes Mountains. Situated 16,700, or 5100 feet above sea level it’s easy to see why it’s one of the most isolated communities in the world. In this photo, you see a giant glacier known as, Bella Durmiente or Sleeping beauty looking down upon the city. With over 50,000 inhabitants, it’s not necessarily a small city community. If you’re thinking about visiting this place though, think again. There are no hotels and no hospitals! The community also lacks police and government presence as well. Built as an unregulated gold mining town, it’s home to some of the most brutal living conditions imaginable. Many visitors would suffer from altitude sickness, but with the lure of striking it rich with gold, people have found a way to adapt to the environment. Although this might look somewhat like a picturesque city, the lake in the background you see is heavily polluted with mercury and cyanide. Pollution is a serious issue here and will most likely be the city’s downfall in the future. 2. Longyearbyen- Long- yay-er-bine Just by looking at Svalbard on a map you can probably guess that it’s isolated. The largest settlement and administrative capital of Svalbard, Norway has a population of 2,100 residents. It’s the northernmost settlement with over 1000 residents in the world and was nearly destroyed by the German Navy during World War II. It’s located 1,269 miles or 2042 kilometers north from the Norwegian Capital of Oslo, making it a tad difficult to govern. Here in Longyearbyen, snowmobiles are actually the prefered method of transportation. A few ships will transport coal from this archipelago and with a few flights from Oslo and Russia each day, Longyearbyen keeps contact with the outside world. The city is so north, that sometimes during certain months, the sun will never rise and even sunlight during midnight! 1.Tristan da Cunha This island gets the nickname as the most remote inhabited island in the world because it sort of is. Tristan is the tip of a volcano thrusted upwards from the ocean floor and by looking at the signs, you’ll definitely feel a long ways away from home. The elevation peaks at 2000 meters or about 6500 feet. The closest land mass is Saint Helena only about 1500 miles or 2400 km away. It seems to be situated directly between the southern tips of Africa and South America and is only accessible by navigating the brutal seas . You might imagine that life on the world’s most remote island is a little bit rough, but people here enjoy a good standard of living here. Crime seems virtually nonexistent on the biggest settlement called Edinbourgh of the Seven Seas. Many family owns potato patches to grow there own food. Despite the good quality of living an active volcano constantly threatens to destroy the city and almost did in the 1960’s. It’s not just people living here, the local rockhopper penguins are extremely popular among those who are somehow able visit this isolated community.

It may look like a typical island paradise - but be warned, because all is not as it seems in this mysterious landscape. The Indian Ocean island, which is about the size of Manhattan, has been inhabited by the indigenous Sentinelese for 60,000 years. The tribe have rejected the modern world and are violent to outsiders - killing two men in 2006 after they were fishing nearby their North Sentinel Island. They even go as far as to throw rocks and shoot arrows at planes or helicopters, and such is the hostility they show towards outsiders that only low-quality photos exist of the inhabitants. Indian authorities have gone as far as making it a crime to try to make contact with the Sentinelese. But while it is illegal to go within three miles of the island, that has not stopped some from venturing nearby. Survival International - which advocates for the rights of tribal groups - has claimed that local fisherman are regularly entering the area - with one even stepping onto the island before he and six others were arrested by the authorities. The group now fears that the survival of the tribe is under threat. Survival International’s director, Stephen Corry, said: "The Great Andamanese tribes of India’s Andaman Islands were decimated by disease when the British colonised the islands in the 1800s. "The most recent to be pushed into extinction was the Bo tribe, whose last member died only four years ago. "The only way the Andamanese authorities can prevent the annihilation of another tribe is to ensure North Sentinel Island is protected from outsiders."

From the isolated native people in the highlands of Tibet to the mysterious islands on a few people will dare to live on, here are 11 most isolated communities Subscribe to American Eye! 5. Most Isolated Capital What do you think the coldest capital on earth is? Moscow, Bern, Ottawa? All Wrong! If you guessed Ulaanbaatar located in Mongolia good job! To the south lies a strange, dry, cold Gobi desert that receives little to no precipitation all year. To the North, you have siberia. This city is regarded as the coldest capital on earth and suffers from long and unbearable freezing winters! We sort of see it as the most isolated capital as well and this whole area of Central Asia is just extremely remote! We don’t even think Genghis Khan could have handled temperatures this cold. Just walking on the street with any exposed skin can result in pain. Do you ever hear anyone saying, hey i’m taking off work to go to Mongolia for a week!? Uh no.. You really wouldn't want to forget a jacket living here. It’s also the largest city on the list with roughly 1.3 million inhabitants which is nearly half the country's population. We’re still surprised that mongolians got out of their huts and even built a capital! Due to its high elevation, proximity to Siberia and lack of precipitation, it’s a rough place to live nonetheless. Due to a large amount of permafrost soil in Mongolia, it makes building foundations difficult. It’s believed this is why many Mongolians live in houses known as Yurts. 4. Siwa Oasis Within the vast Sahara desert lies the Siwa Oasis, in one of the most isolated settlements in Egypt. Situated near the Libyan border, it’s about 348 miles or 560 kilometers west of the capital Cairo. Living here however is nothing new and the earliest known settlers came here during the 10th century BC. Being completely surrounded by dry, inhospitable desert has allowed the Siwa people to develop a unique culture from the rest of the Middle East, which is often seen in their style of artwork, jewelry and their same sex marriage ceremonies. They also speak what’s known as the Siwi or Oasis berber, making them somewhat foreign to the eastern part of Egypt. Here in this photo we see a girl wearing the traditional dress of Siwa while grinding salt. The oasis is inhabited by about 30,000 Siwa Berbers and the hot springs are known to occasionally attract tourists. If you’re looking for some good dates, the people of the Siwa Oasis have been growing them for the past 3,500 years 3. Montecristo The tiny island off the coast of Tuscany, Italy called Montecristo has been shrouded in mystery since the 16th century. To this day, only 1000 tourists are permitted to visit the nature reserve located on this island each year. On top of it, they have to wait 3 years in order to get the visa, just to visit! Is there something the Italian government doesn’t want people to find out about here or is it just to preserve the nature. This was also home to the famous French writer Alexandre Dumas, who wrote the 3 Musketeers. In the novel The count of Monte Cristo, he told of legends about buried treasure left by pirates here. Is it a coincidence that excavations are also strictly permitted on this island? The current population of this island is labelled at 2 people. 2. Szigetszentmiklos -(see-gets-zent-miklos) This community in Hungary is found just about southwest of Budapest in Google maps and it’s quite strange how isolated they seem. The little hungarian community is completely surrounded by water near the Danube River and is quite unurbanized in comparison to the big capital city. There’s about 30,000 residents of this little town which but only a few hundred choose to live on these islands. Villagers enjoy hunting, fishing, and boating in order to stay self sufficient. You don’t really get a true sense of how isolated it is until you kind roam around here on google earth. This photo here shows the tiny fishing community on the body of water known as Pebble lake, and it looks like a good village to survive the zombie apocalypse Tristan De Cuhna This island gets the nickname as the most remote inhabited island in the world because it sort of is. Tristan is the tip of a volcano thrusted upwards from the ocean floor and by looking at the signs, you’ll definitely feel a long ways away from home. The elevation peaks at about 6500 feet.

http://workwithgerry.com - Best Places To Live On Vancouver Island. I’ve lived on Vancouver Island for most of my life. In my opinion the best places to live on Vancouver Island can be narrowed down to a few communities. The Comox Valley - half way up the island on the east coast. Recently voted one of the best places to retire. Offers endless outdoor activities between Mt Washington and the ocean. Skiing, golfing, boating and hiking. The International Airport makes travel a breeze. I grew up here. It's the best place in the world to be a kid. Heading South on Vancouver Island…a few other best places to live on Vancouver Island are Parksville and Qualicum. Charming communities with long sandy beaches have become very popular retirement meccas for its mild climate. Nanaimo, The Harbour City or Hub City for it’s central location. The ferry terminals take you either to North Vancouver or to the main Vancouver ferry terminals in Tsawwassen. A small international airport and from here you can easily drive to Long Beach and Tofino on the West Coast. Always something to see and do in the harbor. Victoria, the largest city on the island. The most beautiful place on earth as described by most residents so most definitely agreed one of the best places to live on Vancouver Island. Often called Canada’s California as it is the most temperate spot on the Island and all of Canada. It’s a lovely city with diversified culture, history and lots of attractions. Victoria is the capital of British Columbia and home of the great University of Victoria making for a very stable economy. And now for my favorite of the best places to live on Vancouver Island…Sidney. Just north of Victoria is the beautiful town of Sidney. A small seaside community on the end of the peninsula where the ferry lands from Vancouver. A gateway to all of the Gulf Islands. It is also home to the Victoria International Airport making travel a breeze. In my opinion and that of most who live here….the prettiest of them all. There are far too many places to explore and things to see to be stuck indoors, which is why you see me out here enjoying the day in the middle of the week. Most of my friends are at work right now. I have the most amazing work – I love what I do and it allows me the time and flexibility to be here.

While there’s no doubt that rising sea levels and other implications of climate change pose serious threats to island nations, it is also true that such locales have much experience adapting to harsh environments. Roger-Mark De Souza suggests that we can learn from island communities and that they have the potential to be “champions of resilience.” That’s the focus of this edition of Wilson Center NOW.

The ‘whole-of-island’ team heading to Abaiang includes representatives from various ministries including Education, Environment, Lands and Agricultural Development, Fisheries and Marine Resources, Public Works and Utilities as well as the Kiribati Meteorological Service. Other partners include; the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program (SPREP) with funding support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the European Union and Australia’s Aid Program. The “whole of island” approach on Abaiang is also implemented by other SPC programs, the University of the South Pacific Global Climate Change Alliance Program (USP GCCA), the USAID Coastal Community Adaptation Project (C-CAP) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). Life on the atolls depends solely on the lagoons, reefs, oceans and its resources. It had shaped culture, lifestyle as well as adapting to survive. The Whole-of-Island approach enhances management through the conduct of fisheries scientific assessments, alternative to fisheries management as with the deployment of Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs), aquaculture trials for resilient commodities, postharvest and development of island council fisheries byelaws. Through scientific assessments, Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) will be established and stringent control on fishing gear and seasons will be imposed by the island councils. Whole-of-Island approach links management of fisheries with land based activities and other activities, such as education.

One People One Reef is about working with outer island communities to bring traditions and modern science together in a revolutionary approach to sustainable ocean management. Micronesian Outer islanders from the remote atolls of the Yap outer islands in the western Pacific have sustainably managed their oceans for centuries, even millennia. Their culture, traditions and livelihoods are intimately linked to the reefs that surround their islands. However, their future is threatened by rapid environmental and cultural change. In 2010, they recognized a decline in fish populations, and the need to address that. The people realized that their health, their communities, and their reefs were experiencing rapid change. They asked for help to learn more about how to manage a sustainable food supply from their oceans in the face of these changes, a critical issue for their present and future wellbeing. We are a team of scientists who came together to respond to the outer islanders call for assistance. Our response was a revolutionary approach that lets communities lead through traditional management backed by modern science. Video: By Kelsey Doyle
