Creating a Living Shoreline along Lions Park to Enhance the Critical Estuarine Habitat (AS)
Create a living shoreline on Tutuila Island in U.S. Territory of American Samoa along Lions Park to enhance the critical estuarine habitat in the adjacent Pala Lagoon and serve as a concrete demonstration of alternative erosion protection to traditional seawalls. Project will create a locally suitable design for the living shoreline project, resulting in the protection of critical infrastructure, improvement of water quality by increased filtration and enhanced biodiversity.
