Brendon Grimshaw, a British national, was editor to some of the most important newspapers in Africa. But in 1972, he gave it all up to go and live on Moyenne Island, which he purchased for £10,000. In the 36 years that he has lived on the island, Brendon and his friend, Rene Lafortune, planted 16,000 trees, built 4.8 kilometers of nature paths, and brought and bred 109 giant land tortoises, creating an island of incredible beauty now worth €34 million. Come with us on this journey and discover why an 82-year-old man fears Moyenne island will one day be destroyed by a voracious global appetite for pristine islands and tourism resorts.
