MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The International SeaKeepers Society, a 501(c)(3) founded in 1998 that promotes oceanographic research, conservation and education through direct involvement with the yachting community, announced its lineup of Fall events designed to honor those who have made extraordinary commitments to preserving our planet’s oceans.
“SeaKeepers’ mission is to research, educate, protect and restore,” said one of its founding members, Nasser Ibrahim Al-Rashid. “Its purpose is to increase knowledge about the oceans, promote and facilitate scientific discovery and raise awareness of critical ocean issues. We invite the community to attend our signature events and engage in this important mission.”
The first of the fall events is the prestigious Bal de la Mer to be held on Oct. 8 in Palm Beach and hosted by Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III and Paula Zimbalist to recognize one of SeaKeepers’ founding members and yachting community pioneer Alexander W. Dreyfoos.
Then, on Nov. 3, the first night of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Seakeepers will host Founders’ 2016, a dynamic evening highlighting the support private yacht owners and their captains provide for the SeaKeepers DISCOVERY Yacht program and its execution of conservation efforts. SeaKeepers enables the yachting community to take full advantage of its unique potential to advance marine sciences and to raise awareness about global ocean issues.
