Conservation and community benefit: Translation of Nafanua: Saving the Samoan Rain Forest into Samoan

Date Approved: 12.2000

This book, by Seacology cofounder Paul Alan Cox, Ph.D., is the first book to address environmental conservation in Samoa. It chronicles the efforts to save the Falealupo rainforest, which was the genesis of Seacology. Most people in Samoa do not have access to this book, which was published in English. Seacology has funded the translation of the book into Samoan and the production of an audiotape, which will be distributed to schools and communities and will air on Samoan radio.
