Henderson Island is an uninhabited island, part of the Pitcian Islands colony and now a South Pacific Overseas Territory. Pitcairn Island lies 193 km to the WSW of Henderson. Henderson was designated a World Heritage Site by the UN in 1988. Settled for a time by Polynesians around the 12th to 15th C., the island was discovered by Fernandes de Querios in 1606, and again by Captain Henderson of the British East India Company in 1819. A sperm whale sank the whaleship Essex in 1820 (the inspiration for Moby-Dick) and the crew landed on Henderson. Today, Pitcairners visit the island and collect miro and tau trees from which they turn make curios for their income.

Henderson Island is a raised coral atoll sitting atop a volcanic mound rising 3.5km from the ocean floor. Most of the perimeter consists of jagged cliffs up to 15m, there are three beaches, and the rest is fringed by reefs. Ships offer scenic cruises off shore. The island is covered by scrub, native flowering plants, and around the perimeter coconut palms. There are also a number of endemic land birds, and sea birds breed on the island. Due to its protected status, efforts have been made to remove rats (the rats won), and it is difficult to protect the island from yacht landings that may introduce unwanted species.

There are no ideas what to do about washed-up plastics (38M pieces) from the South Pacific Gyre. “An uninhabited island in the South Pacific is littered with the highest density of plastic waste anywhere in the world,” according to the National Academy of Sciences. (The island is roughly 6km by 9km.) The island’s key features then are: its isolation, endemic flora and fauna, value to scientific research, and natural beauty.
