Its truly a wonderful place full of so much beauty. The ocean is breathtaking and it shines colours of blue that I have never seen before in my life.
I could go on for hours about the magnificence of this remote place but there's also this strange presence of an extreme horror.
Today Chris Jordan dissected a baby albatross and through heart wrenching tears, we found nothing but plastic within this already dead albatross chick. So that means that from such a young age these birds are being fed our garbage. It is horrible.
Its such a strange paradox to see this dead bird, filled with plastic garbage yet all around him was other albatross' doing their amazing mating dance. It's so strange to see so much death and new life all coming together.
That is what I've been struggling with here on Midway and it's only the first day. We're surrounded by ultimate beauty in this utopia yet there's this awful cycle of death happening all around us everyday.
Something needs to change.
