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.

Surrounded by 175 Spinner Dolphins

Spinner Dolphins at Midway Atoll from Barb Mayer on Vimeo.

Adam and I went on a dolphin survey. It was truly an amazing experience. In my next post, I'll concentrate on the science of the survey, but for now I'm hoping I've successfully uploaded a short video. My camera is really just for snapshots, but it does have a video setting. I hope this simple video gives you an idea of how amazing the experience was.
