Pacific Internship Programs for Exploring Science (P.I.P.E.S.)

August 6, 2013

Nine weeks ago, interns from PIPES arrived our islands to learn and explore our Samoan culture. We were fortunate to have Malia “Maria” Stewart & Cash “Tupe” Helman to work for the National Park of American Samoa as interns for our terrestrial crew.

They had a crash course about our Samoan culture, invasive plant management, researches, grant writings, and community outreach to name a few of their activities, not to mention having fun exploring our Sacred Islands. A big Fa’afetai to both of you for a job well done!

The Pacific Internship Programs for Exploring Science (PIPES) is a university level project-based internship program housed within the Pacific Aquaculture and Coastal Resources Center at the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
