To build a seasteading platform using plastic pieces of garbage that is washed to the Midway Islands
from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
The plastic garbage pieces pose threat to wildlife, such as the albatross population.
If the small plastic pieces were picked up on the shores of the island and melted into bigger
piece of plastic, the albatross could not eat it any more.
Seasteading platforms could be too big for an albatross to eat.
Seasteaders could be allowed to stay, temporary, to collect the plastic garbage on shores,
and melt it to a platform. Later the platform would be launched to sea and the seasteaders would leave the
island on the platform. There might be seasteaders who appreciate such an opportunity.
Either way, human stay would be temporary, and the garbage would be collected and removed from the island.
And the garbage would be permanently converted into a form that is less dangerous to any wildlife.
On the Midway Island, human presence is controlled by United States Fish and Wildlife Service of the
U.S. Department of the Interior. There might be possible to reach an agreement between seasteaders
and the government entity for mutual benefit.
There could be other helpers too, who just want to volunteer time to stay on the island and benefit
the wildlife. That would benefit the seasteaders too.
Using google earth it is possible to look at pictures of different parts the Midway Islands.
I have seen some plastic garbage piles. The plastic garbage, looks like, was removed from the sea,
may be from the shore. There might be already some effort to remove this plastic garbage.
And even when the garbage is removed it is piled on the island.
With the seasteaders the plastic would permanently leave the island.
(I have received a suggestion to contact FWS Rep Barbra Maxfield in Hawaii.)
