National Park of American Samoa’s park rangers, staff, and crew came together to wish our Superintendent Jim Bacon best of luck in his future endeavors on the U.S. mainland. Gifts and some of the island tokens were given to him to remember us by and to remind him that there is always “family” waiting for him in case he decides to come back to visit American Samoa.

Message from Superintendent Jim Bacon:
“My family and I have enjoyed our time in American Samoa over the last two-and-a-half years. It has been an honor and absolute privilege to work with a group of people that truly care for one another, their culture, and their natural environment. We will surely miss this wonderful place and all of the people we have come to know, but we will certainly stay in touch.

The National Park of American Samoa is a special place to be sure and it is my hope that the park continues to thrive. As the National Park Service Centennial approaches in 2016, I know this small, remote park in the South Pacific will embrace and celebrate all that is unique and special here, creating the next generation of Samoan national park visitors, supporters, and advocates.

Tofa soifua Amerika Samoa!”
