American Samoa Community College Interns Produce
Sea Cucumber Brochure

The Pacific Islands Region, through the Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology, helped to support five student interns at the American Samoa Community College in 2008. Four of the students, Joseph Atafua, Francis Leiato, Alofaae Mamea and Tautineia Passi, produced a brochure entitled "Sea Cucumbers of American Samoa" (pdf, 760KB). As part of their internship, the students learned about the local marine invertebrates through a combination of classroom and field exercises. The production of this brochure was their final project.

The internship program was a collaboration between the University of Hawai'i Sea Grant Program, the Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology, NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, and the Marine Science Program at the American Samoa Community College.
