West Lagoon / Palmyra Atoll

I apologize for making you scroll across the monitor.
Lots of folks keep asking, "What does Palmyra look like?"
So here's a 300-degree panorama of West Lagoon.

We have land crabs, coconut crabs and hermit crabs,
"boobies" (masked, red-footed & brown),
six TNC staff members, one Fish & Wildlife refuge mgr,
one dog ("Dadu"), two cats ("Dutchy" and "Tiggeroo"),
no stores, no mall, no saloons, no home depot,
unexploded WWII munitions
and presently only nine scientist on station.
