Spellbinding Islands


MUSE Magazine July-August 2022. Visit Catalina Island’s hardy tide-pool creatures, the Island of the Sharks with ocean conservationist Georgienne Bradley, and Midway Atoll’s albatross with wildlife biologist Beth Flint. Learn about the promise and problems of artificial islands and the stunning biodiversity found in the Sky Islands. See the wild ponies of Assateague Island and the feral pigs of the Bahamas’ Pig Island.

I land on islands! Live the island life – or at least take a tour of some of the most fascinating islands on earth with MUSE.


You’ll discover human-free islands that are inhabited by all sorts of wildlife, or just pigs or ponies. You’ll also meet the ocean life that lives in intertidal zones (and you’ll learn what an intertidal zone is). You’ll be introduced to islands in the sky and man-made islands. No matter what your island dreams look like, MUSE Magazine has something for you.
