Management support to the Palau Northern Reefs area

Project 17 of 49


The Northern Reefs area includes a large number of marine habitat types, including seagrass beds, algal flats, barrier reefs, fringing reefs, patch reefs, atolls, sunken atoll, lagoon areas, small sand spits/islands, and small volcanic rock islands.

Objective: Create new protected area(s) and Strengthen the management of an existing protected area.

Carbon sequestration is not checked for the area invloved. Since coral reefs, seagrass beds and algal flats are known to store carbon it should be possible to calculate an indicative value if necessary (Source: Lifeweb 2012).


Biome: Seagrass and algae
