Palau Conservation Society New PacIOOS Partner

The Palau Conservation Society is our newest Palau MOA partner. The Palau Conservation Society’s mission is to work with the community to preserve the nation’s unique natural environment and perpetuate its conservation ethic for the economic and social benefit of present and future generations of Palauans and for the enjoyment and education of all. The Society’s vision is “Healthy Ecosystems for a Healthy Palau“. The Palau Conservation Society was formed in 1994, the same year that Palau became independent. In the face of mounting development pressure, a group of 10 visionary leaders established the Society to ensure sustainable growth. Starting with species-based educational programs, the Palau Conservation Society has expanded to address issues from local concerns to global changes.
