Visitors to a top underwater photography destination will notice a change in entry procedure. The new “Palau Pledge” stamp requires the signature of the passport holder to act in “an ecologically responsible way on the island.”
Along with the signed pledge, visitors will be required to watch a short film that emphasizes the need to protect Palau’s natural resources. Presumably, the film will be shown during the final descent into Palau.
“Palauans have also taken the pledge, from the president, the first pledgee, to traditional chiefs and residents. Education will play an important part in supporting the pledge as locals commit to protecting and celebrating the uniqueness of their sacred home,” reads a statement on the Palau Pledge website.
