The people of American Samoa and the National Park Service welcome you to the heart of the South Pacific, a world of sights, sounds, and experiences you will find in no other national park.
The park preserves the only mixed-species paleotropical rainforest in the United States, habitat of fruit bats, and Indo-Pacific coral reefs. Also, in keeping with the meaning of the word Samoa--"sacred earth"--the park helps protect "fa'asamoa", the customs, beliefs, and traditions of the 3,000-year-old Samoan culture.
