The stories in these short films are told by Americans Samoans who share their passion for their unique culture and for protecting their ocean resources for future generations. About National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa The National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa is located in the cradle of Polynesia’s oldest culture and is thought to support the greatest diversity of marine life in the National Marine Sanctuary System, including a wide variety of coral and other invertebrates, fishes, turtles, marine mammals and marine plants. The sanctuary protects extensive coral reefs, including some of the oldest and largest Porites coral heads in the world, along with deep water reefs, hydrothermal vent communities, and rare marine archaeological resources, and also encompasses important fishing grounds, the southernmost point in the United States, and waters surrounding one of the world’s smallest atolls. The sanctuary is also the only true tropical reef within the National Marine Sanctuary System, and is the most remote location within that system. NOAA co-manages the sanctuary with the American Samoa Government and works closely with communities adjacent to the sanctuary, all within the context of Samoan cultural traditions and practices. http://americansamoa.noaa.gov/ About Ocean Futures Society Our mission is to explore our global ocean, inspiring and educating people throughout the world to act responsibly for its protection, documenting the critical connection between humanity and nature, and celebrating the ocean's vital importance to the survival of all life on our planet. http://www.oceanfutures.org/

I've spoken to the governor and the delegate from American Samoa, and we continue to provide the full support of the federal government for relief efforts there. I have also directed the State Department to provide the assistance necessary to help Samoa recover as well. We're also deeply moved by the suffering and loss of life that's been caused by the recent earthquake in West Sumatra. And my administration has been in touch with the government of Indonesia to make it clear that the United States stands ready to help in this time of need, and I've ordered my administration to coordinate with the ongoing relief and recovery efforts there. Indonesia is an extraordinary country that's known extraordinary hardship from natural disasters. I know first-hand that the Indonesian people are strong and resilient and have the spirit to overcome this enormous challenge. And as they do, they need to know that America will be their friend and partner." 5. Pull out as Obama exits STORYLINE: United States President Barack Obama, who spent part of his childhood in Indonesia, pledged to support earthquake recovery efforts there as well as providing assistance in the South Pacific countries of Samoa and American Samoa, which were hit by a deadly tsunami on Tuesday. During a news conference in the White House's diplomatic room on Thursday, President Obama said there had been a "terrible" loss of life in Samoa and American Samoa as a result of the tsunami that came ashore on Tuesday. Obama said he would continue to provide the "full support" of the US government to help in the recovery. The magnitude 8.0 quake struck off Samoa at 6.48 am local time (1748 GMT) on Tuesday. The islands soon were engulfed by four tsunami waves 15 to 20 feet (4 to 6 metres) high that reached up to a mile (1.5 kilometres) inland. The quake was centered about 120 miles (190 kilometres) south of the nation of Samoa, formerly part of New Zealand, which has about 220-thousand people, and American Samoa, a US territory of 65-thousand. At least 150 people have been killed, with officials expecting the death toll to rise as more areas are searched. During the news conference, Obama also said he was "deeply moved" by the suffering and loss of life from Wednesday's devastating earthquake in Indonesia, and that the United States stands ready to help. On Thursday, rescue workers in Padang, Indonesia, continued to pull victims, some screaming in pain, from the heavy rubble of buildings felled by the powerful earthquake that killed at least 777 people and seriously injured 440 people according to government figures. The United Nations put the death toll at 1,100 and said it was likely to rise. Wednesday's 7.6-magnitude earthquake started at sea and quickly rippled through Sumatra, the westernmost island in the Indonesian archipelago. Most of the confirmed deaths in Indonesia were reported in Padang where more than 500 buildings were severely damaged or flattened. Obama said Indonesia was a country that had known "extraordinary hardship from natural disasters." There is virtually no enforcement of building regulations in Indonesia, a nation of 235 (m) million people prone to natural and man-made disasters. Indonesia sits on a major geological fault zone and experiences dozens of quakes every year.
