About this book

At twenty-three, Alison Watt left the comfort of a relationship and urban life to spend four months studying puffins on Triangle Island, a remote bird sanctuary far off the northern tip of Vancouver Island.
Told in diary form, The Last Island blends native legends, evolutionary theory, scientific knowledge, and an appreciation for the delicate balance required for creatures as small as krill and as large as fin whalers to survive.
