Clipperton Island interesting facts

Clipperton Island is a barren, ring-shaped coral atoll located 1630 miles south-southeast of San Diego, California, and 1600 miles west of Nicaragua. The only atoll in the East Pacific, it completely surrounds its stagnant fresh-water lagoon and serves as home for thousands of sea birds and millions of land crabs. Clipperton's total area is about 7 square kilometers. Most of the island is no higher than 6 feet, except for Clipperton Rock, a volcanic rock formation which reaches a peak height of 69 feet.

Clipperton Island was originally discovered by Ferdinand Magellan in 1521, but was later named after John Clipperton, an English pirate who led a mutiny against William Dampier in 1704. It has been rumored that Clipperton hid some treasures on the atoll.

In 1708, two French ships 'Princess' and 'Découverte' reached the island and named it 'Ile de la Passion', and annexed it for France. The first scientific expedition took place in 1725 by Frenchman M.Bocage, who lived on the island for several months.

Over one hundred years later, Clipperton was found again by an American guano mining company. The treaty of Guano was made in 1856, and the United States had rights for guano mining on Clipperton. In 1857, the French declared (under heavy American) protest that Clipperton was a part of Tahiti. But after several years of no permanent settlement on the island, Mexico occupied the island in 1897 and established a military outpost on the island.

In 1906, the British 'Pacific Island Company' annexed the island, and built a settlement together with the Mexican government in order to mine guano. In that year, a lighthouse was also erected. In 1914, about 100 people, mixed men and women, lived on the island. Every two months, a ship from Acapulco went to the island to bring food. However, with the start of the Mexican civil war, the atoll was no longer reachable by ship, and the people on the island were on their own.

By 1915, most of the inhabitants had died, and the last settlers wanted to leave on the American war ship 'Lexington' which had reached the atoll in late 1915. However, the Mexican military Governor declared that evacuation was not necessary. By 1917, most of the men had died and only the lighthouse keeper was living along with 15 women on the island. In July 1917, three women were the only ones alive and were picked up by the American ship 'Yorktown'.

How to measure CSR

CSRidentity.com firmly believes that celebrities have great influence on people of that country and some celebs influence people in many countries.

They can promote social issues & the organisations which work for them.

Some corporates know this power of individual brands and are using celebs to promote products, services as well as organisation.

Usually people think of only film heroines / heroes and sports celebs or may have great respect for religion celebs but CSRidentity.com thinks there are administrative celebs, police celebs, singing celebs and one should not forget political celebrities because they make or break a country which is so vital for the world.

Adventure celebs cover people like those who climb Mount everest ....

CSRidentity.com believes in new celebrity types like developmental celebrities, environmental celebrities, health celebrities, science celebrities and common greats celebrities.
