Palau - iNaturalist World Tour

Palau is the 121st stop on the iNaturalist World Tour. Palau is an island country in the Pacific north of Papua and east of the Philippines. Palau is tiny, just about 2.5 times the size of Washington, DC. While Palau is made up of many islands, most top observers have observations clustered on larger islands such as Babeldaob where the capital Ngerulmud is located. The more populous Koror City is nearby. However, @rmcminds stands out by having observations clustered on Helen Reef to the far south. The top observer is @maractwin who, like second top observer @davidr, is an avid scuba diver. Other top observers include @thibaudaronson, @drbh2o, @pangolinzen, @sudachi, @linscott, @albeer23, and @kobori.

The graph of observations per month shows a visit by @maractwin in March 2014 and a peak in June 2019 mostly due to visits by @thibaudaronson @linscott and @kobori.

@maractwin is the top identifier and leads in fish IDs. @phelsumas4life leads in 'other animal' (marine invertebrate) IDs. Other top identifiers include @sascha_schulz, @carmelo_lopez, @glmory, and @davidr

What can we do to get more people in Palau using iNaturalist? Please share your thoughts below or on this forum thread.
