Pitcairn Island Relief

Canoe boat shed reconstruction at Bounty Bay

Fish is a main source of protein for the Pitcairn diet. This means fishing at least part of every week. Individual Pitcairners maintain their own canoes from which they fish. These frail craft are kept in a boat shed at the Bounty Bay landing which is now about fall down. The shed protects the canoes from the frequent gales and storms which lash Pitcairn Island. Termites and other bugs have now brought the shed to near collapse.

A retaining wall must also be built to protect one side of the boat shed. The Pitcairn Islands Study Center has teamed up with the adventure clothing firm The North Face and to raise funds to reconstruct the shed.

You are invited to go to to learn more about this important Pitcairn need, and to donate to this worthy cause. Thank you for helping.
