    Pitcairn is the Paradise island, where no one wants to live. The Pitcairn Islands or officially Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that form the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific. To many, it would seem the epitome of paradise - an idyllic isle thousands of miles from civilisation where the worst noise pollution comes from the azure sea gently lapping the shore. But no-one can be persuaded to live there, for love nor money. The colony on the remote Pitcairn Islands, which were largely populated in the late 1700s when mutineers on the HMS Bounty washed ashore, is under threat of dying out. Faced with a rapidly ageing population and with no children having been born there for more than four years, the i...

Henderson Island, part of the UK's Pitcairn Islands group, has an estimated 37.7 million pieces of debris on its beaches. The island is near the centre of an ocean current, meaning it collects much rubbish from boats and South America. Researchers hope people will "rethink their relationship with plastic".

Es ist die einzige bewohnte Insel der Pitcairn Group. Pitcairn ist 4,5 km2 groß. Die höchste Erhebung ist 347 m. 5310 km ist die Entfernung bis Neuseeland!!!! Heute wohnen auf der Insel Pitcairn im Ort Adamstown 50 Bewohner. Sie entstammen alle den Familien Christian, Warren, Young und Brown. 1790 gingen der Bounty Meuterer Fletcher Christian und seine Gefolgsleute hier an Land. Weltweit soll es 7500 „Bounty-Nachkommen" geben. Die Hauptbeschäftigung der Bewohner ist Landwirtschaft, Obst- und Gemüseanbau und Fischfang. Ihre Boote bauen sie selber. 3 - 4 mal im Jahr kommt ein Versorgungsschiff von Neuseeland. Es bringt Lebensmittel und Post. Pitcairn ist von Klippen und schäumenden Wogen mit gefährlichen Unterströmungen umgeben. Ein schützendes Riff fehlt und so klatschen die Brecher bis an die Küste. Es gibt zwei offene Liegeplätze: Bounty Bay und Western Harbour. Aber es gibt ein Problem. Man muss direkt die Brandung durchfahren und das geht nur bei guten Wetter- und Windbedingungen. Adamstown liegt genau auf der Plattform einer Anhöhe von 120 m über der Anlegestelle von Bounty Bay. Da wir nicht Tendern konnten, kamen die Pitcairner zu uns an Bord mit Ihren Souvenir Ständen. Unsere Passagiere kauften reichlich von den mitgebrachten Schnitzereien und anderen Dinge, wie Honig, T-Shirts und Briefmarken der Insel. Wir schauten alle über die Reling, als die Pitcairner unser Schiff wieder verließen. Der Wellengang war noch höher geworden, sodass es selbst für die erfahren Pitcairner nicht einfach war, ihr Schiff zu besteigen! Aber sie sind wieder gut an ihr Land gekommen! Unsere Reise geht weiter!

Pitcairn is the Paradise island, where no one wants to live. The Pitcairn Islands or officially Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that form the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific. To many, it would seem the epitome of paradise - an idyllic isle thousands of miles from civilisation where the worst noise pollution comes from the azure sea gently lapping the shore. But no-one can be persuaded to live there, for love nor money. The colony on the remote Pitcairn Islands, which were largely populated in the late 1700s when mutineers on the HMS Bounty washed ashore, is under threat of dying out. Faced with a rapidly ageing population and with no children having been born there for more than four years, the inhabitants are desperately trying to attract new residents. But the task is proving far harder than they hoped, in large part due to its dark past of child sex abuse that continues to haunt the community to this day.

The community of the Pitcairn Islands, have now joined with the Pew Environment Group and the National Geographic Society to call on the British government for the establishment of a large highly protected marine reserve within the exclusive economic zone (the area of ocean from the shoreline out to 200 nautical miles) of the Pitcairn Islands. Watch this video to see what the residents of Pitcairn have to say about their islands. They give some good reasons to create a marine protected area around their islands.

WELLINGTON: Tiny Pitcairn Island, a one-time hideout for the infamous HMS Bounty mutineers with a population of just 50, has legalised same-sex marriage to help bring the remote community into the modern age. The change to the law was made last month but only just released publicly on the official website for the island Britain's last Pacific territory. While Pitcairn's Auckland-based Deputy Governor Kevin Lynch was unaware of any same-sex islanders likely to wed, he said it showed the territory was adapting to the modern world. "I think it's quite a substantial change that reflects their standing in the world... bringing them into line with modern legislation," Lynch told Radio New Zealand. Formally known as The Pitcairn Group of Islands, the territory consists of four volcanic outcrops in the South Pacific, about halfway between New Zealand and Chile. It is bsest-known for the historic mutiny, but also made headlines in 2004 due to a child sex scandal that a government-commissioned report found "severely sullied Pitcairn's reputation internationally".

National Anthem of the Pitcairn Islands, the smallest jurisdiction in the world with a population of just 56 people! The Pitcairn Islands (/ˈpɪtkɛərn/; Pitkern: Pitkern Ailen), officially Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that form the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific. The four islands – Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie, and Oeno – are spread over several hundred miles of ocean and have a total land area of about 47 square kilometres (18 sq mi). Only Pitcairn, the second-largest island that measures about 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) from east to west, is inhabited. The islands are inhabited mostly by descendants of nine Bounty mutineers and the Tahitians (or Polynesians) who accompanied them, an event that has been retold in many books and films. This history is still apparent in the surnames of many of the islanders. With only about 50 permanent inhabitants, originating from four main families, Pitcairn is the least populous national jurisdiction in the world.

The mutiny on the Bounty, aboard the British Royal Navy ship HMS Bounty on 28 April 1789, was led by Fletcher Christian against the commanding officer, William Bligh. The mutineers subsequently settled on Pitcairn Island. The Bounty was later burned off Pitcairn Island to avoid detection and to prevent desertion. The descendants of some of the mutineers and Tahitians still live on Pitcairn island. VP6T DX-PEDITION 2012 DATES = 20 JAN to 04 FEB 2012 DXCC ENTITY = Pitcairn Island OPERATIONS = all 9 HF bands, 160-10 m. WEBSITE = http://www.vp6t.org/ SOME DX-PEDITION INFORMATION FROM THE VP6T WEBSITE PITCAIRN ISLAND: The Pitcairn Islands group form the southeastern most extension of the geological archipelago of the Tuamotus of French Polynesia. It comprises the islands of Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno. Pitcairn, the only inhabited island, is a small volcanic outcrop of 5km² situated in the South Pacific. It is roughly 2170km (1350 miles) east south-east of Tahiti and just over 6600km (4100 miles) from Panama. The Islands' administrative headquarters are situated in Auckland New Zealand, 5310km (3300 miles) away. They belong to the United Kingdom by which it is administrated as an overseas territory. DATES & OBJECTIVES: 20th January to 04th February 2012, DXCC entity = Pitcairn Island, all 9 HF bands, 160-10 m. After their successful operation from French Polynesia in February 2010 as TX4T, three of the four operators, joined by two new operators, are pleased to announce a new major DXpedition to CQ Zone 32 and to the famous and mythical Pitcairn Island in the heart of the Pacific Ocean This DX operation from Pitcairn has a target of more than 30,000 QSOs. With good propagation forecast for early 2012, efforts will be made to give this extremely rare entity to deserving DXers on as many bands as possible, but especially on the low bands. The rarity of VP6 ensures that all operators will be kept fully occupied during our nine full days on the island. We will be travelling there by boat. We are planning to have three stations active round-the-clock. Travelling to Pitcairn is not easy. There are only limited travel opportunities to get there. January has been chosen as the optimum time for HF propagation to the major centres of amateur radio activity, at the heart of winter in the Northern hemisphere. The principal objective is to offer DXers worldwide the chance to make at least one contact with this remote DXCC entity that hasn't seen any large-scale amateur DX-pedition operation for the past decade. All nine HF bands will be activated to offer new band slots to the DXCC Challenge chasers. The team will make a particular effort to focus on contacts with Europe and the US East Coast. Openings to Europe will be short. We will pay special attention to sunrise and sunset times. We count on the discipline and fair play of US West Coast operators to give a chance to the propagation-challenged continents. VP6T OPERATORS: F6BEE -- Jacques - Prefers CW but also operates SSB and some RTTY. Prefered bands: all but 20 m. G3TXF -- Nigel - Operating on DX-trips has primarily been on CW. As ever G3TXF is a keen supporter of LoTW (as well as a keen collector of QSLs!) and hopes that the full log for VP6T can be up-loaded either during the operation or immediately afterwards. VE2TZT -- Gilles - prefers CW and low bands, especially the 160m band. His ham radio center of activity is around DX, contesting, fieldays and since TX4T: Dxpeditions. FM5CD -- Michel - is proud and excited to be member of this new adventure ... he is sure that VP6T will be a rich and fun experience. F4BKV -- Vincent - favorite mode is SSB, but also PSK31 and RTTY. VP6T will be the first part of a "Round the World" trip planned for five weeks in January/February 2012.

An uninhabited island in the South Pacific is littered with the highest density of plastic waste anywhere in the world, according to a study. Henderson Island, part of the UK's Pitcairn Islands group, has an estimated 37.7 million pieces of debris on its beaches. The island is near the centre of an ocean current, meaning it collects much rubbish from boats and South America. Researchers hope people will "rethink their relationship with plastic".
