The Palau International Coral Reef Center is Palau’s leading research and aquarium institution with a mission to guide efforts supporting coral reef stewardship through research and its applications for the people of Palau, Micronesia, and the world. Our vision is people empowered with science and knowledge for effective marine conservation and management. Our work is locally and internationally relevant and contributes to better informed decisions regarding the management and conservation of our marine resources.
Our facilities include the Palau Aquarium, a place to look, learn, and become inspired. Our conference rooms with state of the art equipment and comfortable and spacious rooms are excellent venues for meetings, workshops and conferences. We also support visiting researchers by providing laboratory space, living accommodations and transportation for field work.
