There are still slight inconsistencies regarding this Connection
a. Regarding which islands have a note about "non permanent" inhabitants. If Cocos, Gough and Macquarie do then so should Wrangel.
b. If Islands are being included which have NON-permanent inhabitants on them then the following should be considered (with a note about the non-permanent inhabitants!)
i. Aldabra. It just has a research station whose staff Wiki lists as "Research Officer, Island Manager and their rangers and staff. There is no other permanent population". I have been there and met some of them and a previous Manager - all are on short term contracts.
ii. St Kilda. I quote from its Management Plan "Since the evacuation in 1930, St Kilda has had no permanent inhabitants – although since 1957 Hirta has had a temporary and/or seasonal population of .... civilian staff at the MoD base, of Trust and Scottish National Heritgae staff and of scientific researchers." Hirta is the bigger of the 2 islands. The "MoD base" is a radar tracking station
