Coral Reef Research Foundation

The Coral Reef Research Foundation (CRRF) supports conservation and resource management efforts in and beyond its home base in the Republic of Palau. The Republic of Palau is the westernmost archipelago in the Caroline Island Chain and is located near the "Coral Triangle," a term coined for a region with the world's largest shallow-water marine species diversity. While water barriers limit species exchange between Palau and the Coral Triangle, the oceanographic and geological contrast of the areas sets the stage for riveting research. Under the Research tab, readers can browse through information about coral reefs, marine lakes, terrestrial environments, and other relevant topics. For an even deeper dive into Palau's marine environment, readers will want to download Marine Environments of Palau (found on the Data and Publications tab). In its more than 400 pages, the book covers the history and future of coral reefs and other marine habitats in Palau (with plenty of charts and pictures, too). For a more hands-on data hub, readers may want to explore the Biodiversity Database (also found on the Data and Publications tab in the Data Archives section). Here, users can sift through many specimens, narrowing by filters such as "phylum" and "species."
