What: American Samoa is an island chain paradise, located about 2600 miles southwest of Oahu, Hawaii, and 2500 miles northwest of Brisbane, Australia. Unfortunately, recent storm activity has resulted in constant erosion of its beaches, especially those located within Pago Pago Harbor, such as Utulei Beach.
Why: Cyclone Evan hit the island in December of 2012. Sea level rise and climate change have caused a large increase in storm energy and water runoff from land to sea.
What you can do to help: American Samoa still has some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. The island itself hosts a fabulous national park. Book your next vacation at a local hotel here and enjoy the freshest fish you will ever eat. And please help us fund whatever research or technology is necessary to begin reversing the erosion of American Samoa!
