Ngarchelong, Palau

M2 Deployed Here!

Location Summary

Enforcement rangers at this site use M2 to monitor vessel traffic in the Ngarchelong Marine Managed Area (NMMA). Within NMMA, the Ebiil Conservation Area, established in 2003, is of special concern due to aggregations of spawning fish species, invertebrate populations, and diverse coral communities. Harvest of marine resources is not allowed in this area. Roughly three kilometers offshore, human patrols, requiring time and resources, had been necessary to monitor vessel activity in the area, but M2 allows rangers to monitor this activity without the need for these patrols. With the help of M2, the Ngarchelong Rangers have seen a reduction in illegal activities taking place within the marine managed area.
