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.

Midway's Red, White and Blue

RED from the beak of a Tropicbird (Koa`e `Ula, Phaethon rubricauda), WHITE from albatross foot prints on sand, and different shades of BLUE from the ocean and sky.  

Happy Independence Day, America; take care of your natural heritage!
