Palau Visitors Authority with the collaboration of Angaur State Government conducted its second site cleanup at Angaur State. Main objective of the clean-up is to support each state with the maintenance of their tourist sites, improvements such as production of new signage, maps and brochures for promotion and advertisements.
The first site cleanup was held in Ngardmau State, at the Olketokel Bad with volunteers from other states. This year Angaur State volunteered their state for the site cleanup project, requesting beach cleanup for luaiu and Ngeruchei. Seventy trash bags were filled with debris such as plastic bottles, slippers, foams, bottle caps and many kinds of plastics along the beach as well as the shore area. The group also managed to clean one of the Japanese Shrine in luaiu.
