FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Miami, Florida - November 28th, 2016 – Dive Butler International and the International SeaKeepers Society announce a new partnership which will enhance the ability to further marine conservation efforts around the world. Together, the organizations will promote the yachting community’s unique ability to support marine research by encouraging vessels to participate in ongoing scientific studies. They will be providing an on-the-water research platform for scientists, deploying instruments, and supporting education groups for a hands-on outreach experience.
Dive Butler has set the standard for scuba diving onboard luxury vessels by offering unique experiences for divers at all levels. They work globally and have established a dominant presence in the Maldives. This partnership will help inform their vessel owners about additional opportunities to experience the marine world by supporting research onboard. SeaKeepers will also have the potential to expand its DISCOVERY Yacht Fleet through this community of marine enthusiasts.
Participating vessels may support coral reef research in the Maldives, surveys assessing populations of sharks and rays, and pollution monitoring efforts. SeaKeepers has previously facilitated research which has included shark tagging and behavior studies, plankton tows and genome sequencing, and research on the dispersal of marine pollution. The potential for furthering marine conservation is limited only by the location of willing vessels and existing research projects.
