Guam- Registration is now open for the 27th Pacific Islands Environment Conference.

According to Guam Environmental Protection Agency spokesperson Tammy Jo Anderson Taft, it is Guam’s turn to host the event. She mentions the conference is conducted every two years by one of the U.S. territories. Representatives from the CNMI, American Samoa, Hawaii and others from the pacific region and U.S. mainland are expected to attend. This year’s theme is “Reduce, Balance, Enhance.” Taft notes the conference will also feature guest speakers and breakout sessions.

“The goal is to get people to come and talk about environment management decisions, ways that we can improve, success stories, things that have worked, things that haven’t worked and how we, as environmental managers, can work together to do a better job at what we need to do,” said Taft.

A Coral Reef Symposium and Water Workshop will also be held prior to the event. The conference will be held from June 26-28 at the Hyatt Regency. For more information or to register, log on to regonline.com/piec2013 .
