    Find these places/ Find these places are

    ''In the last 50 years, ten new volcanic islands have been formed.
    Newly created and often remote, they're hard for colonists to reach.
    Even those that do find these places tough to survive''

    Can I replace the underlined part of the sentence with '' find that these places are tought to survive.'' ?

    Thanks for your help.

    In both cases, I would add "in" after "survive".
