Wrangel Island (Russia)



An island off the coast of Siberia, Russia. This 2,900-square-mile expanse has been claimed at various times by Canada and Russia. Wrangel never supported an Indigenous human population, but it was a refuge for polar explorers awaiting rescue. Others attempting to settle the Island died, undone by their naiveté and Anglo-American hubris.
