National Park of American Samoa
Samoa, a chain of mountainous islands clothed in tropical rainforest, is ringed with rugged cliffs, glistening beaches, and biologically rich coral reefs. Two rain forest preserves and a coral reef are home to unique tropical animals including the Flying Fox, Pacific Boa,sea turtles, and an array of birds and fish. The park contains paleotropical rain forests, pristine coral reefs, and magnificent white sand beaches.
The Samoan culture is Polynesiaís oldest. The first people on the Samoan islands came by sea from southeast Asia some 3,000 years ago. Over the centuries, distinct cultural traits emerged collectively called faíasamoa, the Samoan way.
Park lands are on three separate islands - Tutuila, Ofu and Tau - and total 9,000 acres. The national park is entirely on lands leased from the ten Samoan villages which are the true landowners.
