Nihi ta naʻgåsgas i kanton tåsi! Let us clean Guam's coasts

Hafa adai everyone!

Itʻs been a while since Iʻve posted a blog post. I just returned from an internship in Hawaiʻi... Iʻll be talking about this internship on posts to come because I tried my best to incorporate the Micronesia Challenge and our Micronesian values when doing this internship.

Please mark on your calendar the date for the coastal cleanup. Let us clean Guamʻs shores for not just us, the people of the land, but for the life that lives within the ocean. 20 years of cleaning the shores of Guam and the cleanups just get bigger and bigger.

Volunteers may receive a t-shirt (while supplies last), a free admission to Fish Eye park, Guam, and discounted admission to Underwater World, Guam. How cool is that?! I wouldnʻt want to miss out on a great opportunity.

Attached is the flyer for the coastal clean up. I hope to see you there.

Heads Up

The Guam Triathlon Federation is proud to partner up with the Guam Department of Agriculture, Division of Aquatic and Wildlife Resources for their "Piti Pride Tepungan Wide" campaign.  The GTF is a regular user of Piti Bay or "Tepungan Bay" which is a one of the Marine Protected Areas on Guam.   To help with the campaign, the GTF will be hosting a quick beach clean-up along a portion of the run route of our triathlon after this Sunday's Sprint Triathlon (May 4th).  The GTF will provide bags and gloves for folks.  If you want to help out after, DAWR rep (Jane Dia) will be there to hand out the supplies and other outreach items in support of the campaign.   This is a great way to give back to the community and Piti Bay since we are able to have multiple triathlons at Hoover Beach.

An Invasive Species Video

In my evolution course at the University of Guam, we were presented with the video below. 

Around the 6 minute mark, it talks about the Guam Rail and Brown Tree Snake problem on Guam. It was great to see a video on the Guam rail, but I know that the video will be in need of an update on the status of the birds of Guam. 

Take the time to learn about Guam and the island's situation with invasive species!
