Blue Bay Petroleum Incorporated supports PICRCs Summer Internship Program

 Last year, as a result of Palau’s 2016 Year of the Youth Small Grant Scheme, the Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) received a grant from the Government of India to support PICRCs Summer Internship Program. The program, focusing on building science and environmental capacity in Palau’s youth, was incredibly successful among the eight Palauan interns who joined PICRC. Now, to continue this program, PICRC has received a donation of $5,000 from Blue Bay Petroleum Incorporated.

Blue Bay has been a supporter of many programs relating to the environment, sports, culture and the arts, and have continued to be a supporter for PICRC. Year after year , they have donated to our Arts and Tides Calendar, and fundraising events. “Blue Bay is excited to be part of this year’s PICRC Summer Internship Program and to be able to support participating students’ learning experience”, stated the Sales Station Manager for Blue Bay, Ralph Moses, “We wish them all the best and we hope to see them soon here in Palau in the future”.

The Summer Internship Program allows high school and college students the chance to gain research experience and build employable skills relating to marine research and resource management. Additionally, the program provides students the opportunity to work closely with a mentor on a variety of topics relating to conservation. Through this internship, students develop a network of long-lasting professional contacts for their future careers.

These internships are as valuable to PICRC as they are to the students. New interns bring new energy and fresh ideas to the Center and in return, we provide them with a chance to work towards a career in the field of conservation. PICRC researcher, Victor Nestor, started as an intern back in 2007 and returned as a researcher after completing his Bachelor’s degree in 2012. Now, Mr. Nestor has a Masters in Marine Science from the University of the Ryukyus (UoR) in Okinawa, Japan. “My internship at PICRC helped me narrow down my educational interests,” Mr. Nestor commented on his internship with PICRC. “I’m very grateful for this program that has lead me to two degrees and a career in marine biology”.

The Summer Internship Program would not be possible without Blue Bay’s  generous contribution and we are incredibly grateful for their continued support.

Ms. Rubie Gabriel studies coral recovery at Despedall for her internship with PICRC

 Ms. Rubie Gabriel, from Palau Community College (PCC), has completed her internship with the Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC).  In the past three months Ms. Gabriel has been working for PICRC to complete her internship and field study course, two requirements for PCC. During her time at PICRC Ms. Gabriel interned under the guidance of PICRC Researcher, Marine Gouezo.  She conducted her research on coral recruitment rates on the outer reefs of Palau following typhoon Bopha and Haiyan.

On Thursday, May 4th, Ms. Gabriel concluded her internship with a presentation on her research project that she presented to PICRC and PCC staff along with PCC classmates.  Through her research, Ms. Gabriel found coral recruitment is much higher on the western outer reefs than it is on the eastern outer reefs. Ms. Gabriel determined coral recruits are in competition with bryozoans, a type of marine invertebrate, and if the eastern reefs do not receive enough coral larvae they will be outnumbered by these highly competitive invertebrates.

Ms. Gabriel is currently completing her degree with PCC in Environmental/Marine Sciences. Upon graduating, Ms. Gabriel will go to Hawaii where she has been accepted as an intern for a Research Experience for Undergrads (REU) program through the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.  This is a great opportunity that will offer Ms. Gabriel even more hands-on experience and provide an excellent transition in to college.  In the coming fall, Ms. Gabriel will begin a four year degree in Biology at Eastern Oregon University.

PCC President, Dr. Patrick U. Tellei, presented a $1,500 check to PICRC for hosting Rubie over the past three months.  We are very grateful for our longstanding relationship with PCC and fortunate to work with their motivated students, aspiring to make a difference. We hope together we can have a lasting impact on these students and inspire them to return to work in Palau one day.
