Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is a small but international group who share a genuine concern for the oceans and are passionate about protecting them. Corporate headquarters are located in Coral Gables, Florida.

“From food to weather and jobs to national security, our lives are inextricably linked to the oceans. Simply put, we cannot live without them. In turn, the health of the oceans and coastal areas is directly dependent upon our actions”. Admiral James Watkins, US Navy (Ret.) and SeaKeeper Awardee, 2005
