In June 2015 SeaKeepers launched the SeaKeepers of the World Program to identify individuals who demonstrate a commitment to ocean research and conservation in their local communities. SeaKeepers Board of Directors recognizes individuals whose environmental goals and scientific and conservation efforts align with the SeaKeepers mission to Research. Educate. Protect and Restore. The International SeaKeepers Society will be identifying SeaKeepers of the World over the next year to represent regions around the globe.
