On August 1st 2019, the Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) welcomed, Ms. Lbong Walter into the Administration Department.
As a graduate of Palau High School, Ms. Walter completed a Certificate in Administration from Palau Community College and had been working at the old Palau National Marine Sanctuary for the past two years as the Finance Officer. Ms. Walter will now be acting as the Accountant Clerk at the PICRC where she will fulfill various administrative tasks. “I’m excited to join PICRC and learn about marine preservation while at the same time growing in my field” stated Ms. Walter.
Ms. Walter came to the center as a result of a new law that mandated PICRC to administer the Palau National Marine Sanctuary (PNMS). PICRC will continue to build its capacity so that it can successfully implement its new mandate.
