||CRCP ID 1413-05, Project Name: General Coral Conservation Grants, Principal Investigator: Andy Bruckner
||The purpose of the project Building capacity for locally managed marine protected areas in Kayangel and Sonsorol states, Republic of Palau is to assist the remote island states of Kayangel and Sonsorol to better protect their marine resources through improved management and monitoring capabilities. Both states are remote and own a considerable amount of marine environment. Kayangel state is Palau's northernmost state. Sonsorol state is one of the outlying Southwest Islands, which are located from 300-450 miles southwest of the main Palau islands. Four islands make up Sonsorol state, three of which are isolated from each other by more than 50 miles. These islands are culturally and geographically distinct from the main Palau islands
