A glowing hermit crab tentatively peeks out of its coral burrow in Palau. This island nation, along with nine independent countries, eighteen territories, and Hawaii, composes the Micronesia-Fiji-Polynesia biodiversity hotspot. Rich in vulnerable endemic species, this hotspot encompasses more than 1,400 islands—and an area twice the size of the continental United States.
