We just got a new boat recently so today we took it out to make sure everything was good with it. It is really nice compared to our other boats. We can use this one for emergencies as far as Kure Atoll which is about 90 miles away. Other than going around the atoll in the boat, I really didn't do a lot today, so I'll just give you a few pictures.
This is our new boat.
This weanling seal was being lazy on the boat ramp next to us.
The dolphins came to visit us again. I finally got a good dolphin picture after the 100's I've taken.
After high school I went into the Navy doing nuclear power stuff on a submarine. After 6 years, I left the Navy then got my biology degree from Montana State Univ. I then worked for the USDA doing human nutrition research for 8 years. I also got my Master's Degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of North Dakota. While doing that I worked for Mr. Ellie Pooh selling elephant dung paper (google it) to help the Sri Lanka elephants. After that, I did the only logical thing with my MS and moved to Cleveland, OH and got a job in security at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It was great, for a while, but I found a 1 year temporary job at Midway Atoll with the US Fish & Wildlife Service. I loved it so much that I moved to an even smaller island with only 4-15 people (Tern Island). After being the Asst Manager, then the Manager, I got the chance to go back to Midway as the Wildlife Biologist for a few more years. Just so you know, I didn't write this as an employee, I just commented about my days here and put up some photos, so these aren't the views of the FWS. I still do ocean work for the FWS, but I do it from the Headquarters office in the Washington D.C. area.
