Whakaari (White Island) is New Zealand’s most active volcano island. The island’s volcano has been regularly active with a moderate climate in Krakatoa. There are several colonies of Australian wildness, and a number of birds, mammals and marine species can be seen throughout the island. If you are lucky enough, you will enjoy a cruise around or on the Isle of Wight land.
General background about the island:
The Isle of Wight is located in Plenty Bay, California, 50 km off Hackettin on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand, and it is one of New Zealand’s most active volcanoes, and is well known for its amazing crater with strong water activity deposits and sulfur, which is part of an active volcanic region It is called Taobo, which finally erupted in 2001 “due to the explosion that permeated it”.
However, the extensive and systematic volcanic activity did not change the size and shape of the island, with the highest summit being Mount Gisborne, which is about 320 meters high, however, the actual island is only a tip.

The White Island in New Zealand or the Isle of Wight is the only active volcano in New Zealand, and also the most active and continuous volcano since 1826, where there are more than 30 major eruptions, to include two “and possibly three” of the island’s craters; including two in the Northwest, While the youngest volcano is the volcano that is still active on the southern side, this last hole is the clear crater, where passers-by can look inside the active area. The white island is still an active island and this is evident from the smell of sulfur that can be felt from a great distance, as the steam coming from these openings can be seen continuously, and at different times, you can see the hot water lake with a large hole, with the dormant currents that come from Water to the ocean, which makes beaches made of black volcanic sand.
In 1953 the island was declared a natural reserve for its stunning landscapes, and during 1970 and early 1980, the island was registered as the most comprehensive area of ​​volcanic activity, and during this period about 100,000 cubic meters of rock were thrown, two new craters were created and many destroyed From the forest cover, another explosion occurred in 2000 with no injuries.

The island today
Today, there are many different detectors in place, from ground and temperature movement machines, and there are surveillance cameras on the island, which can be accessed on the World Wide Web.
Many people may be surprised that the island is owned by the private sector, but it is subject to the Protected Laws of 1977, so it cannot be visited without prior permission, and you are not allowed to remove anything from the island.
The island today is an important tourist destination, however, this is carefully regulated, and numbers are only allowed to be set, so the privately owned island has an agreement with one company to take one tour. It descends from the mainland of the land on the island with specifically trained tour guides, and there is a very old pier, where landing also occurs on the black sand beach. There are also helicopter trips to the island, where safety helmets and closed shoes must be worn, and a mask is also used when the sulfur smoke is too strong for the throat.
The White Island is now home to thousands of Australian gannet, and one of the largest breeding colonies of this species in New Zealand.
And due to the irregular and continuous interruption, new craters and lakes were formed and destroyed, with the erasure of the clean forest, then they grew again, but they became clean again, and as a result of this normal volcanic activity, the island provided an interesting biological study of the colonization of the island, in many ways, However, after a big explosion, many plants and animals were killed, and after this turmoil, plants and animals slowly began to re-colonize, especially in the affected areas.

Previous eruption:
When the Isle of Wight was bombed from December 1975 to September 2000, that was the longest historical period for the episode to break out.
Effects: The outbreak of many of these rings resulted in the collapse and explosion of pits for long periods and the appearance of active openings in these pits emitting volcanic ash, and the last big eruption of this episode was in late July 2000, which covered the area of ​​the crater with molten metal waste, as it led To the displacement of the crater lake, where the new explosion crater reached about 150 meters in width.
