The International SeaKeepers Society works with the yachting community to promote and encourage oceanographic research, education and conservation, giving yacht owners and crew the opportunity to participate in the advancement of the marine sciences and raise awareness about marine conservation.
A core belief of the SeaKeepers Society is that protecting the world’s oceans is key to protecting the wider global environment. Society members and the Society as a whole are dedicated to creating practical solutions to address the plight of the oceans, in line with its motto: 'Research, Educate, Protect and Restore.'
“The International SeaKeepers Society greatly appreciates such a generous gesture by Mr. Billy Joel to support an incredibly worthy cause,” said Chairman of the Board, Michael Moore.
Richard Snow, SeaKeepers President/CEO, added, “We are forever grateful for this donation and would like to thank yacht broker Bruce Leffers of Northrop & Johnson for assisting to make this happen.”
“When the situation is right, it is an honor to help support an outstanding charity like SeaKeepers,” said Group President of Northrop & Johnson Bruce Leffers.
