At Biota we are actively working on developing several educational campaigns in Palau. In the past year we have opened our doors to local elementary schools to teach the young about aquaculture and conservation. Our goal is to extend the invitation to high schools across the country and inspire students of all levels to grow into adults that will take care of their ocean.
Universities have visited us through individuals interested in the conservation projects we are carrying, as well as groups of Marine Biology students who have seen the real-life application of their field in the private sector. We have received overseas students and recent graduates, who have stayed and learned with us the practical aspects of Aquaculture over short periods of time.
As part our education efforts, we also keep our facility open to the general public –both residents and visitors, who can see our work first hand and understand the positive impact that sustainable aquaculture can have in the near future of the ocean.
