Conservation Champion: PPR makes annual Contribution to PCS
Palau Pacific Resort (PPR) has been a long time champion of Palau’s environmental conservation efforts as well as a Corporate Partner for Conservation (CPC) to the Palau Conservation Society (PCS) for many years. On December 1, 2017, Dr. Minoru Ueki- Chairman and Ms. Bola Majekobaje- Executive Director of PCS, were on hand to receive the yearly CPC donation of $ 5,000 from Ms. Lucy Sugiyama – Assistant General Manager of PPR.

PPR has been the premier “5-star” hotel in Palau for the past 33 years, meeting the needs of visitors and international dignitaries that visit our island. As a conservation champion, PPR makes environmental conservation a daily business activity. A clearly marked conservation area is just off the hotel’s beach. In these waters, guests can see all kinds of corals, fish, and even cultured local clams. PPR also manages its own water system and employs solar panels that harness Palau’s seemingly endless sunshine thereby reducing their dependence on public water and electric systems.
PPR celebrated Earth Day 2017 by implementing a successful Coral Planting activity for its guests and a coastal cleanup along the coastlines near the hotel on April 21st. The guest enjoyed the coral planting immensely remarking that it gave them the opportunity to be part of Palau’s conservation efforts. The coastal cleanup was done by PPR staff who volunteered their time for this important activity in which trash and crown of thorns were collected and disposed properly. These activities are a clear demonstration of PPR’s commitment to financial, environmental, and social success. This commitment ensures Palau’s environment stays pristine for locals and visitors to experience and enjoy and have resulted in very real impacts that have benefited both Palau’s environment and communities.
“We wish Palau Conservation Society continued success in all its activities and programs,” Ms. Sugiyama.
PCS board and staff appreciate PPR for making environmental conservation their daily business and for their continuous support as a Corporate Partner for Conservation. PCS is very grateful to PPR and all CPCs making conservation their business. With the challenges facing Palau’s environment, everyone should make conservation their business.
