Fogo Island

In a country full of tiny, remote communities, Newfoundland’s tiny Fogo Island has to rank among the smallest and hardest to get to. Devastated by the collapse of the cod fishery in the 1990s, Fogo today is an inspiring example of how rural communities can be brought back to life. In this video, native Fogo Islander Zita Cobb talks about her Shorefast entrepreneurial vision for the island.

For more information on how the combination of culture, hospitality, and remoteness have provided Fogo Island with a tremendous boost, check out the Shorefast Foundation’s website.
