POPs 3-D Educational Traveling Exhibition
POPs 3-D Educational Traveling Exhibition
In Palau, local resources such as fish, birds and other wildlife, as well as local agriculture, have
long been relied on by Palauans for their food source. In addition, with Palau’s small population,
the threat posed by POPs can be even more serious. Therefore, the people and the government
must discuss how to deal with POPs now and in the future. This project will create awareness
about POP’s, their adverse impacts, and convey proper methods of handling, disposal and
remediation procedures.
