An Eagle Ray makes it’s pass as a tug boat patiently waits for a container ship to enter the port of Saipan. I have come to the realization that the shipping industry plays a crucial role around the world. As we live our complex lives, we take for granted the significance and importance of an industry so old and complex.
Managaha Island. One of Saipan’s most visited spots due to it’s emerald green waters, white sand beaches, and isolation in the Saipan Lagoon. The island offers numerous pavilions for residents/tourists to spend the day/overnight enjoying their “beach front” view of mother nature. Managaha is located in a Marine Protected Area where any fishing/harvesting activities violate the rules of the MPA. Managaha is currently experiencing a change in topography due to erosion in the northern parts of the island.
