Global Ocean Legacy


Palau, located in the western Pacific Ocean, is world renowned for its healthy and incredibly diverse marine ecosystem.  Home to more than 1,300 species of fish and 700 species of coral, the Micronesian island nation has been called one of the seven underwater wonders of the world.  The nutrient-rich waters are teeming with sharks, turtles, manta rays, dugongs and tropical fish.  Pew’s Global Ocean Legacy team is working with the President of Palau to create a large, fully protected marine reserve in these waters to safeguard this area for future generations.
