Many states in Palau are in the process of completing management plans for conservation areas, to acquire PAN site membership. There are still unofficial criteria that were followed in creating the management plans and must be followed for reporting to PAN. States must have Annual Work Plan and Work Plan Schedule. The first criteria is, maintenance biological/cultural integrity “On-the-ground” conservation activities. The second criteria is, states must have the capacity to conduct monitoring survey of species and habitats, conduct education & outreach to communities, among other things. These are just some of the criterias, that the states have to know and follow. These are examples of education and awareness materials such as stickers, information sheets, CD and posters that has been distributed around Palau and Micronesia that can help increase knowledge. These publications are available at PCS for pickup by states to help their conservation area management programs.
