The Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) has welcomed another new staff member this year. Jeremiah Ngiratreged joins PICRC as a member of the team overseeing the implementation of the Palau National Marine Sanctuary (PNMS). He works as the PNMS Surveillance and Enforcement Officer; whose job is to manage and coordinate operations within the Maritime Operations Center of the Division of Marine Law Enforcement. He will play an important role in coordinating both regional and local partners to aid with the monitoring and surveillance of the PNMS.
Mr. Ngiratreged joins the Center from Palau Judiciary Branch, where he worked as a Clerk of Court. His main duties there included administrative work preparing orders of the court, as well as examining and preparing other legal documents, and coordination with attorneys to obtain information. Using both his experience at the court, and his educational background as a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice, Mr. Ngiratreged stated that he would like to use this opportunity working at PICRC to advance his skills in a new sector.
PICRC would like to welcome Mr. Ngiratreged to the team, and looks forward to the work he will contribute towards implementation of the PNMS. As always, the Center will continue to provide updates as the administrative body in charge of the PNMS, and thanks the public for their continued support.
