Description

Both a WWII historical park and a locally popular recreational area, American Memorial Park on Saipan Island in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands contains more than just sports fields and a state-of-the-art museum. Mostly obscured from view by overgrown trees and vines is a modest, but lively 30-acre wetland mangrove forest complete with vibrant native birds, plants, insects, and crustaceans.

Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
