E komo mai; welcome! Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge is surrounded by a lei of foam in the middle of the North Pacific; it's a beautiful, special place.

Not only are there albatross on Midway, but many other interesting kinds of wildlife, both on the land and in the sea. Please enjoy exploring FOAM, an educational blog actively done while on Midway from May through August 2010. Posts are added from off-Midway, as information becomes available. If you're interested in a particular topic, please use the search box or the alphabetical list of "labels" along the left side of the blog page.

Oli Mahalo (Thank You Chant)

Oli Mahalo composed by Kēhau Camara and performed by the Kamehameha Scholars

This afternoon I'll get on a small plane in Honolulu and travel 1200 miles almost to the end of the Island chain to Midway Atoll.  As I start my 3-month volunteer work on the Atoll, I'd like to say mahalo for this new opportunity.

Hi Barbara!

This is Robyn from the 2008 NOAA Marine Debris cruise. I'm on the SCUTTLEBUTT listserv and saw your email about the blog go out. Just wanted to say hi and let you know I'm looking forward to reading about your adventures!

Take care!

Hi Robyn! Good to hear from you and know that you'll be reading our FOAM posts! Just finished my first day of work. Will post something more substantial this evening. Best aloha!
