At Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC), we are committed to the safety and security of our visitors and staff. As we face many uncertainties with the COVID-19 pandemic, we will take a precautionary approach and implement measures to limit exposure and risk to our partners, collaborators, guest and the public at large. The Center will continue to conduct research but will limit outreach activities to internet and e-mails. Since most flights will be discontinued and schools are closed, we will also close the aquarium to the public. We will continue to work on much needed maintenance and improvement of displays during this time. If you need to contact us please do so by e-mail or phone, as we try to minimize in person contact as much as possible.
