NES is proud to announce the new appointees for the Aitutaki & Mitiaro Environment Officers position respectively. After some thorough deliberations since the positions generated a lot of interest from the public. A heartfelt congratulations to Linda Ruamona for Aitutaki, and Gretta Murare for Mitiaro.

Linda is a passionate educator with a keen interest in our natural environment. She knows too well how important it is to our existence, in particular the Pa Enua. Her love for all outdoor activities especially with the ocean, be it for leisure or for family sustenance, instills confidence that Aitutaki is in capable and caring hands.

Gretta, a daughter of Mangaia is happily married and permanently resides in Mitiaro. She has developed a strong relationship within the community through initiatives be it by the church, school or Mitiaro as a whole. With a strong background in administrative work and a passion for preserving our Cultural and traditional way of life which includes protecting our environment. NES is really excited as Mitiaro’s biodiversity is considered to be unique, as some species were found to be endemic. Mitiaro also boasts the largest wetland in the Cook Island therefore making this appointment even more special.

NES looks forward to working with our island communities through our officers as the role is crucial in delivering secretarial support to our Island Environment Authorities, with focus on areas such as Biodiversity and Conservation areas. Research and environmental baseline data is the driving force to ensure NES’s stewardship measures are supported by science and data.

To Gretta and Linda, we welcome you to the NES family and we look forward to the great things we would be doing for our Cook Islands people.
