World War II Veteran
FOMA is pleased to offer Honorary FOMA memberships for all World War II Veterans in recognition of their heroic service. The Laysan Rail could still be seen on Midway during the War.
The “Bosun bird” or Red-tailed Tropicbird was known to the many Veterans stationed on Midway. Its nickname comes from the bird's raucous calls which sound like a bosun's whistle.
Green Sea Turtles forage on seagrasses and algae among Midway's protected reefs and bask on sandy beaches. These Students of the sea learn how to find their way back to Midway!
The Bristle-thighed Curlew is a unique Individual — it's the only shorebird that goes flightless during its annual molt. With no predators, Midway is a safe winter haven for the curlews.
Laysan Ducks embody the essence of a resilient Family. From a small group of pairs translocated from Laysan Island to Midway, the growing population creates hope for the future.
Hawaiian Monk Seals are among the most endangered animals in the world. Contributors help keep Midway a “safe harbor” for the 50-60 seals that rest, molt, and pup on the atoll.
Like the “Golden Gooney,” Lifetime memberships are the rarest of the rare. We salute and honor this exceptional commitment to our collective work. Join the ranks!
