The Living Oceans Foundation Global Reef Expedition kicks off 2015 in Palau, visiting many of the country’s reefs including the Rock Islands Southern Lagoon, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The purpose of the research here is to obtain detailed information about the health and state of the reefs through various survey and data collection methods. The science team will also compare marine protected areas with non-protected areas to evaluate marine management strategies. The result will be a detailed scientific report for local communities, agencies, and relevant stakeholders in the region to help with ongoing management and conservation of Palau’s coral reefs.
