Marine conservation, marine research, marine pollution, ocean literacy
SeaKeepers is an organization that unites the yachting community with the scientific and educational communities to facilitate conservation. Via their extensive range of programmes, they educate about the marine environments of the world and help restore them. Marine Science and conservation is supported by utilizing member yachts as platforms for marine research, educational outreach, and to deploy oceanographic instruments. These efforts eliminate vessel costs and allow scientists and educators to maximize funding towards research and education. Additionally community engagement programs promote conservation awareness and unite local participants in beach and dive clean-ups.
