What makes an island an island?

In a way our entire planet is an island, floating in the Solar System, our galaxy, the universe.  Our continents have drifted around the globe over millions of years, joining and parting as they ended up in the earth we know today.

But in special ways we designate certain land masses as ‘islands.’  We will be exploring a range of small islands, some inhabited by people, others just by birds, plants, insects, and other animals.

Join us as we explore what the concept and reality of island is.
