In order to build resilience against the effects of climate change, our island community is taking action to address local environmental threats.
Starting at Fouha Bay where our ancestors told us civilization began, we are committed to reviving the once fruitful watersheds, vibrant coral reefs, and abundant near-shore fisheries of Guam.
