A woman living on a remote island off the coast of Canada devoid of human life could certainly give Robinson Crusoe a run for his money. Zoe Lucas, 67, has spent 40 years living on Sable Island, a large smile-shaped sandbar measuring around 26 miles long. The only other residents on the patch of land are around 400 horses, 300,000 grey seals and 350 species of bird. Talking to Mail Online Travel Lucas, who is revered for her work as a naturalist, revealed that she has adapted to island life and never gets lonely. She says her essential survival tools include a jotter pad, so she can take notes, and binoculars to observe the wildlife on the sandy shores.
