PA`A program, and they learned a lot about Midway's environment, especially the impact of marine debris on wildlife.
Ron and Fred started the SOAR website to spread the word about stopping marine debris. And they also travel around the world to bring the information directly to community and school groups.
This year Fred returned to Midway to join the PA`A 2010 group. In the first picture he and friend Randi, a Big Island of Hawai`i teacher, are resting after having planted the native Hawaiian grass, Kawelu, or Bunch Grass (Eragrostis variabilis.) Fred also shook hands/beaks with a new friend, a 2010 Laysan Albatross chick.
