A message from Angelo Villagomez

I sent myself (and the rest of the Friends of the Monument) the following message this morning:
Subscribe to the USFWS Marianas Trench Marine National Monument email list

Dear Angelo,

Hafa adai!

It has been a while since you have heard an update from the Friends of the Monument, but I assure you we have been busy.

We are in the midst of creating a monthly e-newsletter and the first issue should be out in a few weeks.

In the meantime, the Friends were contacted by the US Fish & Wildlife Service, the federal agency charged with managing the monument, to help them with their initial local outreach and the upcoming scoping period.

They are trying to build a contact list of interested residents and are asking people who would like to be added to their email list and/or mailing list to email them at with your name, email, phone number, and mailing address.

They will add you to their contact list and will keep you up to date with news from the USFWS concerning the monument.

That e-mail again is

Thank you for remaining engaged in this process. If you have any questions feel free to call me at (670) 285 6462 or email me at

Si yu'us ma'ase,

Angelo Villagomez
