GEOGRAPHIES OF SOLITUDE
Conservationist Zoe Lucas came on Sable Island, a lonely island off the coast of Nova Scotia, for the first time in the 1970s and has been living on this remote strip of land for decades now, mostly alone. Her studies of the biodiversity there have made the self-taught scientist an esteemed expert.
