The Coral Reefs of Palau: Nature's Amazing Underwater Cities
Join The Nature Conservancy on a Virtual Field Trip to the Coral Reefs of Palau: amazing underwater cities found near a remote network of islands, deep in the Pacific Ocean. Our journey to the coral reefs will open students' eyes to an amazing, interconnected ecosystem built on symbiosis, where diverse organisms are designed to protect, clean, nourish, and even camouflage one another. In this natural factory, the coral supports its many "workers" and they, in turn, keep the coral healthy.
