The Etpison Museum, together with Neco Marine and Coral Reef Research Foundation has published three new 45 page booklets for 2012:
Everything you ever wanted to know about Jellyfish lake and other jellyfish found in Palau (Do you know how to tell a male from a female jellyfish?). Proceeds of this booklet will assist Coral Reef Research Foundation with their ongoing Jellyfish Lake research.
Dutch wildlife photographer Mandy Etpison shares what she has learned about mantas from photographing and observing them over the last 25 years in Palau. She has photo-identified over 150 individual mantas locally, and started a database and website (www.mantaIDpalau.org). Some of the most popular mantas seen at German Channel are also featured in this booklet, with little-known facts about mantas’ behavior and biology. You can add to the database by submitting your photos of Palauan manta rays
This is a updated reprint of the 2010- I LOVE Mesekiu Dugong Awareness Campaign booklet. 1,500 copies were distributed for free locally to schools, libraries and government agencies in 2011 to raise awareness about local ongoing illegal poaching of the endangered Dugong. This booklet will now be sold in stores to visitors.
