Koror, Palau –The Palau Conservation Society (PCS) is always thankful to receive a donation from its donors. In this time of pandemic and world-wide financial crisis, the local conservation NGO understands the challenges that businesses are facing with a reduced customer base and challenges in the supply chain.

Knowing this, staff at PCS were overwhelmed and thrilled to learn that MVP Space Rentals, SPACO Finance, Belvedere Apartments, and Sun’s Flower Shop would be making a gift to PCS in the amount of $5,000.00. On April 2,Mrs. Sandra Pierantozzi presented Bola Majekobaje, Executive Director at PCS, with the generous donation.

Mrs. Pierantozzi is a founding and current Board member of PCS. She and her husband, Mr. Marcello Pierantozzi, are among PCS’ earliest donors contributing approximately $75,000 over the years.

A couple truly dedicated to conservation, in 2017 Mr. and Mrs. Pierantozzi granted PCS the lease for the newly named MVP Forest of Hope in Peleliu. This seven acre forest located at the base of bloody nose ridge, is an important habitat for nine endemic birds, including the critically endangered Palau Megapode.

PCS is extremely grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Pierantozzi for their continued generosity and for their leadership in protecting Palau’s unique environment for present and future generations.
