The International SeaKeepers Society is pleased to announce its festivities for the upcoming Miami International Boat Show including feting Khaled bin Sultan, celebrating Living Oceans Foundation’s Global Reef Expedition and presenting a Scientific Panel.
SeaKeepers honoree, H.R.H. General Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation, promotes scientific exploration and surveys the world’s coral reefs. HRH’s yacht fleet, which includes the M/Y Golden Shadow (which employs a SeaKeeper 1000), are set to embark on a four-year Global Reef Expedition.
Immediately following the scientific discussion, the panelists will be joined by others from the business and yachting community for a fundraising reception aboard Golden Shadow. Guests will have the opportunity to tour this unique research yacht and view first-hand the diver’s decompression chamber, the amphibious sea plane lift and the yacht’s scientific equipment, which includes a SeaKeeper 1000™.
As the Golden Shadow travels the world’s oceans, SeaKeepers will record valuable oceanographic and atmospheric data for the scientific community through the ship’s SeaKeepers 1000. “Golden Shadow is a vital part of SeaKeepers’s data collection fleet,” said Dean Klevan, president and CEO of SeaKeepers. “The greatest way to protect the sea, and ourselves, is by providing the best possible information to scientists and resource managers.”
