Sea Dragon and Team from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution reached Jarvis Island

Sep 14 2012

Sea Dragon and her WHOI team are now on station at Jarvis Island. This former military base is now part of the large US marine reserve in the region. Here is a quote from the US Fish and Wildlife website that gives a sense of just how far o

ut the team is…

“The island is uninhabited, and entry is by permit only. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service personnel visit Jarvis about every 2 to 3 years, though occasionally scientists and researchers team up to share high transportation costs to the island. Jarvis is accessible only by ship.”
