O le Pūpū Puē National Park


O le Pūpū Puē (OLPP) National Park was officially announced as a national park in 1978, and is the first-ever national park recorded in Samoa and the South Pacific region. Located on the southern part of Upolu Island, it extends from the highest point of Upolu, Mount Vaivai (1158m), down to the rugged Le Pupū lava coastal cliffs. With the inclusion of a forestry plantation on the west coast side of the park and a recreational area, OLPP covers over 12,000 acres.

OLPP National Park acts as a site for community tree-planting, including the National Two Million Tree Planting Campaign 2015-2020, and focuses on restoring the natural status of forest resources within the park and drawing back the natural biodiversity that are endangered and threatened by hunting and other human activities. Awareness activities and educational programmes are also delivered to the communities through assistance of projects linked to the site, to increase their understanding of the importance of forest conservation.
