The Midway Island Project

Living in paradise has given me the opportunity to learn things about the environment that I really never paid much attention to before. I “do my part” to help save our Earth by recycling and reusing items; but I realize that I have to do MORE. Everyone does. So, I’m sharing a series of videos with you that will seriously OPEN YOUR EYES to what we humans are doing to our beautiful planet and all the amazing creatures that live here.

The MIDWAY film project is a powerful visual journey into the heart of an astonishingly symbolic environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on our planet, tens of thousands of baby albatrosses lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic from the Pacific Garbage Patch. Returning to the island over several years, our team is witnessing the cycles of life and death of these birds as a multi-layered metaphor for our times.
