An 86-Year-Old Man’s Island Paradise [wowNews]

In 1962, a successful Yorkshire newspaper editor by the name of Brendon Grimshaw bought the tiny island paradise of Moyenne in the Seychelles in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The price was £8000 (roughly $150k of present USD), but he is rarely lonely.

Now considered the world’s smallest national park and harbouring more species per square foot than any other part of the world, Brendon has spent the years reintroducing the indigenous giant tortoise to Moyenne and shares the island with 120 of the magnificent creatures.

The BBC’s Simon Reeve went to visit him.
