The Coral Reef Advisory Group (CRAG) coordinates American Samoa’s coral reef management efforts. CRAG is a collaboration of seven local agencies: the Department of Marine and Wildlife Resources (DMWR), the Department of Commerce (DOC)'s Coastal Zone Management Program (AS-CMP), the National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa (NMSAS), the American Samoa Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Samoa Community College (ASCC), the National Park of American Samoa (NPSA), and the US Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS) Rose Atoll National Wildlife Refuge and Marine National Monument. CRAG also collaborates with numerous partners; they include: the NGO Ridge to Reefs, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Service Office of Pago Pago, US Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), NOAA Pacific Islands Regional Office (PIRO), AS Department of Education, AS Power Authority, AS Port Administration, US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Department of Youth and Women’s Affairs, and more. The Office of Samoa Affairs (OSA) is a group comprised of village pulenu’u (mayors) and is the most effective avenue to communicate with the villages of American Samoa. CRAG agencies and partners will continue to use the OSA as the first point of contact when conducting work in villages of American Samoa.Something looks off?
