Join The Nature Conservancy’s expert marine biologist Stephanie Wear on a virtual field trip to the coral reefs of Palau where you'll explore amazing underwater cities found near a remote network of islands in the Pacific Ocean.

This journey to the coral reefs will open your eyes to an amazing, interconnected ecosystem built on symbiosis, where diverse organisms 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.
