Many of you already know that the Coral Reef Research Foundation laboratory in Palau was severely damaged last week in a fire caused by a car that rammed into their building and burst into flames.  Decades of collecting work and specimens from Palau and reefs all over the Pacific were lost in the fire, as well as much of their research equipment.  Pat and Lori Colin who run the lab have assisted many researchers over the years and they could use your help now.

The Coral-List probably cannot be used to directly ask for funds to help them out as they rebuild their lab, but you can check their Facebook page for more information on the status of clean-up and rebuilding.  Here is a link:
