This mini-documentary explores the astounding seabird colonies of the British Indian Ocean Territory. The tiny islands of the Chagos Archipelago are havens for nesting birds, and a precious resource in the vastness of the Indian Ocean. Stewart McPherson was given rare access to visit several islands of the Territory to document the astounding diversity of birds that call this remote corner of the Indian Ocean home. In this film, we follow conservation efforts that aim to clear the islands of invasive rodents and coconut palms to allow the natural bird numbers to recover.
