Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge
Situated midway across the world*s largest ocean, 1,200 miles northwest of Honolulu, Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge is a place of astonishing beauty. From the air, one sees the surrounding cobalt sea breaking white over the barrier reef into an aquamarine lagoon holding the atoll*s three low-lying islands. The refuge provides nesting habitat for over 2 million sea birds, including 2 species of albatross*the Laysan and the black-footed.
Because of Midway Atoll's remote location in the middle of the North Pacific Ocean, it can only be reached by air, or by sailboats under a special use permit system. For further information please contact the refuge by telephone at 808-674-8237, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
