Discover American Samoa With NOAA Podcast Episode 22


You can discover more about American Samoa with episode 22 of the NOAA Podcast.

Troy Kitch hosts the episode, and his interviewee is the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation and Coastal Zone Management programs in American Samoa site liaison Hideyo Hattori.

The podcast offers an interesting and insightful view of the underwater life of American Samoa, especially how the corals around the island are some of the healthiest in US waters.

One of the interesting topics in the podcast is the resilience shown by corals around the island, which bleach on an annual basis and recover, and how scientists hope that by studying these corals, they can gain insight into how this happens, and how it can help other coral reefs around the world.
