Palmyra Atoll

An unimaginable and unforgettable experience

This year I was given an invaluable experience to travel to a small remote island in the central Pacific Ocean with Scripps Research Institute and Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences. This unique expedition introduced me not only to the Earth’s largest oceanic division, but to a new world where human influence on the marine environment is minimal.

My 24th Birthday was spent on the island. I was overwhelmed with kindness and we spent the night drinking rum with the resident manta rays by the dock .
