9 Metric Tons of Marine Debris Removed
After just thirteen days of operations, a 9-person team had removed nearly 9 metric tons of derelict fishing gear, plastics, and other debris items from the reefs and shorelines of Midway Atoll.

Midway Atoll is part of a chain of volcanic islands, atolls, and seamounts extending from Hawai'i up to the tip of the Aleutian Islands. The 2.4 square mile atoll, which is an unorganized, unincorporated territory of the United States, and the former home of the Midway Naval Air Station, is now a National Wildlife Refuge.

Midway Atoll is a critical habitat in the central Pacific Ocean. It supports nearly three million birds, including the up to 70% of the world’s Laysan Albatross population and over 250 species of marine life such as reef fish, squid, octopus and crustaceans which help to support the endangered Hawaiian monk seals that raise their pups on the beaches.

Debris carried by ocean currents washes up on shorelines all over the world. The marine debris on Midway Atoll washes up on shore in quantities of over 100 pounds per week. This debris is a major danger for sea animals as well as the birds that mistake the debris for food.
