Friends of Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge (FOMA) is a group of staff, board members and volunteers that are connected by a passion for helping protect and preserve the natural beauty and historic resources of the Midway Atoll. The atoll is home to an abundance of native birds, plants and marine life, including Albatrosses, Green Sea Turtles and Monk Seals. A National Wildlife Refuge since 1996, it was also designated as the Battle of Midway National Memorial by the US Navy in 2000. This year Midway received a visit from a special guest: President Obama. The launch of FOMA’s redesigned website came just in time for his visit.
FOMA had been internally working on a redesign in WordPress before reaching out to us for help getting the site finalized and launched. After getting them switched over to the stable and secure Genesis Framework, they asked us to work with them to incorporate a Merchandise Store and Membership/Donation area of the site. For this we set them up in WooCommerce, which is our go-to eCommerce solution for WordPress. Other special site features include multiple gallery pages, featured videos and a Facebook streaming box.
Even if you can’t make it all the way across the Pacific Ocean, you can visit the atoll virtually at FriendsofMidway.org.
