American Samoa Animals
As you swim and dive, you can experience the beautiful scenery of the local underwater world. A lot of folks don't know that the corals are live animals. More than two hundred species of algae are found in Samoa, USA, accounting for about a third of all algae in the Indo-Pacific area.
American Samoa National Marine Sanctuary
American Samoa designated all its waters as a whale and turtle sanctuary in 2003. As a result of this vision, national and regional rules prohibiting any nuisance or capture of shellfish and shellfish were implemented. Due to decade-long over-fishing, these fish are small and smaller.
The Endangered species act (ESA) was adopted by Congress in 1973. It is the aim of the European Space Agency to save endangered breeds. With so many stocks on the list when their population reaches its lowest point, long-term effort is needed to restore them to stable and sustained numbers.
Out of the 128 US listed threatened fishes at the time of the adoption of the European Space Agency in 1973, 59% have improved, have improved or are in a steady state. There are many more saved from dying out. The national naval sanctuaries such as Fagatele Bay conserve and conserve threatened fish and their unparalleled ocean environment and ensure that they always have a home.
The federal act on the protection of mammalians and the local government of American Samoa protect all maritime cetaceans. In American Samoa there are several kinds of tortoises, all of which are regarded as under threat or at risk. The majority of the population has never seen the loggerhead tortoises, leatherback tortoises and oil groves that still populate the coast, but the loggerhead and loggerhead tortoises are coastline inhabitants and are not uncommon.
Chelonia meydas (laumei in Samoan) migrate between its food areas in the west Pacific, mainly Fiji, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands, and the east Pacific, where it mates and lays an egg. Vertebrates can survive more than 20 years before they reach the breeding stage and then another 4 or 5 years.
Loggerhead sea turtles can be found in Samoa all year round. Loggerhead sea turtles feed higher in the nutrient chains, and they like to feed on fungi and other fixed (grounded) animals. Tortoises' preys often have poisonous chemical substances in their body to help prevent them from being predated (but not turtles!).
Females do not start laying until they are about 20 years old, so it will take a long while for the populations to recuperate, even if they are protected from predators. They do not look "green" - the colour relates to their meat, which has a shade of greens due to their seaweed diets.
Vertebrates can reach three foot length and up to 300lbs. Tortoises only come ashore to lie down or sunbathe on the occasion. There is a South Pacific folk story that says that Mom eats her young tortoises. Isn' t it so? They' re fully veggie.
The effects of climate change can affect the relationship between men and women and further endanger the marine turtle population. Leatherback tortoises feed on open water animals and prefers a special food with jelly fish. It is unfortunate that a bag looks very much like a swimming jelly fish and unfortunately it is not unusual to find corpses with intestines.
During the nesting period, females come ashore every few microweeks to nest. It is against the United States and American Samoa legislation to murder or injure a marine tortoise. The Endangered species act (ESA) was adopted by Congress in 1973. It is the aim of the European Space Agency to save endangered breeds.
With so many stocks scheduled when their population reaches its lowest point, long-term effort is needed to restore them to acceptable and sustained status. Out of the 128 US wild birds that were on the vulnerable fish lists at the time of the adoption of the European Space Agency in 1973, 59% have either recuperated, improved or are in a state of stability.
There are many more saved from dying out. The national naval sanctuaries such as Fagatele Bay conserve and conserve threatened fish and their unparalleled ocean environment and ensure that they always have a home. Would you like to know more about the protection of biodiversity?
