The International SeaKeepers - a small but powerful group of influential yacht owners

Traveling the world to save the oceans

SeaKeepers
Society

The International SeaKeepers was founded in 1998 by a small group of yacht owners who were horrified by the deteriorating conditions of the seas. Their initial mission was to develop a compact, automated and cost-effective ocean and atmospheric monitoring system to install aboard their yachts, providing data to scientists on the health of the world’s oceans. The innovative SeaKeeper 1000™ is now deployed in more than 45 locations around the world, including yachts, cruise ships, ferry boats, buoys and piers. Inquiries and orders for additional SeaKeeper 1000 units now numbers more than 20.

The International SeaKeepers Society has grown over the years to include international leaders, governments, scientists and marine organizations. Endorsed by such organizations as the United Nations, the World Meteorological Organization, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, NOAA and the U.S. National Weather Service, it promotes knowledge and support of sensible, achievable marine protections and restoration initiatives.

Members of the SeaKeepers Society recognize the ocean’s critical importance to the life of our planet and are deeply committed to finding real-world solutions to the problems now plaguing our seas. The small, but very influential membership includes entrepreneurs, yachtsmen, corporations, divers, scientists and concerned citizens in building this global effort to help restore and protect the world’s oceans.  SeaKeepers publish a number of resources including the 11 Critical Issues available via pdf by clicking here. Membership is by invitation as well as by volunteering.  Membership minimum donation for individuals is $2500.
