White Island is off the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island and is currently the country’s most active volcano. The island is inhabited and is only home to a former sulphur mining station which was shut down in 1914 after 10 workers were killed when part of the volcano’s rim collapsed. Since then, the island has been privately owned and is frequented by scientists and tourists from around the world.
