The iBird App

The Etpison Museum donated over 100 photos of Palau birds to start this project. The app can be bought and downloaded from iTunes, showing photos, drawings, information and sounds for each Palau bird. It is also available to use for free to anyone visiting the Etpison Museum.

Endemic Birds of Palau

After publishing the first photographic bird guide book in 2008, the Etpison museum teamed up with the Dutch Embassy in Manila and the Palau Conservation Society to publish a brochure and two posters on Palau’s endemic birds, with common, scientific and Palauan names, to be distributed for free to local schools, government agencies, hotels and tour operators for educational purposes and to promote bird watching as a new low impact tourism attraction for Palau.
During the 2019 renovation of the building, the museum added an endemic bird mural by the reception, where people can learn about Palau’s birds using the iBird App. Mural by Mandy Etpison and Holly Nolan.
