WHAT WE DO
CRRF does original research to acquire the knowledge needed to understand and make intelligent decisions related to conservation, climate change and resource management.
Based in the Republic of Palau, surrounded by diverse reefs of the western Pacific, CRRF has a waterfront marine research facility with lab space, accommodation and three research boats.
Our research programs are oriented towards 1) the dynamics of the marine environment as they relate to conservation decisions, 2) limits of species diversity, community distribution and biogeography, and 3) monitoring with respect to short to long-term environmental and climate changes.
Come explore with us our past and present accomplishments towards these goals and join us on our journey into the future.
