For an old evaporating black hole the entanglement wedge of radiation
can include an entanglement island that covers a big portion of the
black hole interior.
We explore a few simple cases where these islands appear and lead to a
resolution of apparent information problems.
We also discuss how these islands arise through a standard replica trick
computation of the entropy.
