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.

PA`A -- The Teachers Are Here!

There are 12 educators on Midway participating in a week-long program called PA`A = Papahānaumokuākea `Ahahui Alaka`i  They come from all over the world: from Hawai`i to England, from New York to Florida.  These teachers are busy!  They are participating in a variety of activities using traditional Hawaiian knowledge, science methodology, island conservation and wildlife conservation.  Each teacher has a plan to achieve their own care of natural and cultural resources back in their own home communities & schools.  Visit the PA`A blog to see what they're doing!
