Deep in the heart of the Pacific lies a small, mostly uninhabited archipelago called the Line Islands, one of which is a nature conservancy by the name of Palmyra Atoll.
Palmyra is Ground Zero for the testing of various conservancy methods, which, once proven effective in this micro-environment, are brought around the world and applied on a larger scale.

The videos above (part 3) and below (part 4) show the latter half of John’s exploration, which includes his visit to the Palmyra atoll and its neighboring islands, along with a few cheeky surf sessions.
It is surprisingly therapeutic.
