SeaKeepers typically hosts signature events throughout the year that highlight aspects of our programming and achievements to date. Together with industry partnerships that help to extend the reach of our message exponentially, the purpose is to educate the yachting community about conservation and marine issues and more importantly, empower constituents to take action and become part of the solution.
On April 8th, 2016, The International SeaKeepers Society board member, Julian Chang together with his wife Sandra Chang, chaired an event to host the launch of Singapore 3D: DISCOVERY Yachts; Dedication to Marine Research, Education & Conservation; Delivering Results.
