Tourism represents the bulk of economic activity. A pioneer in seabed protection, this small country in Micronesia has made its waters a sanctuary. With its waters at 29 ° C all year round, the Republic of Palau boasts a wide variety of underwater species. The absolute defense of the natural environment is enshrined in the Constitution of this State since its independence. It is even taught in primary school. In September 2009, President Johnson Toribiong announced the creation of the first shark sanctuary in the world before the United Nations.
