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.

No peeking at these answers until you try the "ACTIVITY: Laysan Ducks #1 --  Bands" in FOAM's top menu bar.  It's fun!

21. O+                                31. GN/WG
22. Too worn to read!        32. Y4
23. GYJ                             33. GY1
24. GNX1                          34. GNY
25. WM6                           35. W/2MG

Some of these codes are hard; don't worry if you missed some.  In the next few days FOAM will have some pictures of Laysan Ducks with bands.  You can practice being a wildlife scientist by trying to read bands on real ducks!
