PI-TOA (Pacific Islands & Territories Ocean Acidification) Network

The term "Toa" means "warrior" in many Polynesian Island languages. The PI-TOA network works collectively to better understand and combat the impacts of ocean acidification in the region. In recent years, there have been several ocean acidification trainings and "GOA-ON in a Box" kit recipients in the Pacific Islands and Territories. As capacity for ocean acidification monitoring increases in the region, there is an increasing need for collaboration and communication among the various islands and territories.
