Pearl huderson is an island off the coast of Tahiti, which is one of the only places in the world where there are pearl mines, according to the World Wildlife Fund.

The island is also home to the first recorded pearl, a rare pearlshell from ancient Egypt.

When a pearl was discovered in 2011, the island was named after the pearl itself.

The islands’ rich marine environment, which includes marine turtles, sharks, dolphins and turtles, is also a major drawcard for the islanders.
