In accordance to the recommendations stated by the Ministry of Health in MOH Directive No. 114-20, Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) is happy to announce that we will resume to normal business on May 18, 2020.

While the public will be able to access the Center’s facilities, such as the Giant Clam Gift Shop, conference rooms and general offices, the Palau Aquarium will remain closed until further notice due to current maintenance work.

PICRC’s first priority is protecting and limiting risk to all partners, collaborators, guests, and public at large. For this reason, cancelled programs will remain cancelled, outreach engagement will be limited, and precautionary measures, such as frequent handwashing and respiratory etiquette, will be maintained while visiting the Center.  We ask the public to please refrain from visiting the Center while sick.

For assistance, questions or other inquiries, please contact us by email at or via phone (680) 488 6950.
