Sa Moana Folauga
by Samoa Voyaging Society, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Ministry of Agriculture and Conservation International. (Partnership)
The Sa Moana Folauga is a voyage to build capacity and awareness on environment and natural resource management and to revive our voyaging heritage in communities in Samoa. This is to ensure communities are better ocean stewards through establishing protected areas and sustainable use of marine resources and switching to renewable energy alternatives to reduce carbon emissions.

This is an inaugural journey promoting identified conservation and heritage messages for the protection of our countrys fauna and flora. Like many other Pacific island countries, nature is a central feature in Samoan culture and heritage. The international and regional community recognizes the importance of empowering local communities as the true stewards of nature and have actively engaged in initiatives and programs to be taken proactively to prevent the demise in the state of our natural resources.
