Guam - Members from the We Are Guahan Coalition took part in a snorkeling educational tour this afternoon at the prime snorkeling areas in Apra Harbor. According to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement, the military may need to dredge parts of Apra Harbor to make way for a transient aircraft carrier berth.
Coalition members argue that the harbor is the only protected, deep-water lagoon environment on Guam, which hosts unique reef organisms. The group has already taken hikes to Pagat and have been attending various town hall meetings on the buildup.
