Fly over the Bounty Islands

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

The Bounty Islands were first sighted by William Bligh in 1788, who named them for his ship, mutinied just seven months later. He described them as covered in “patches of snow’, which is in fact guano—the output of tens of thousands of seabirds which nest here.
