The health of the world’s oceans is of increasing importance to superyacht owners and crewmembers. What they’re learning is both alarming and encouraging. They’re discovering that a big obstacle scientists and researchers have in making discoveries and educating the public is access. Specifically, scientists and researchers lack access to vessels traveling certain waters, plus can’t pay for time aboard. However, owners and crewmembers are encouraged that they can donate to the cause, welcoming these professionals aboard their own yachts. Better yet, you can do the same, thanks to the International SeaKeepers Society. SeaKeepers is seeking citizen scientists and others supporting ocean and climate preservation.
The non-profit has been the subject of a number of articles over the years. Notably, it’s recently made significant strides in propelling science forward. Additionally, it has much more it wishes to accomplish, with enthusiasts like you. In this episode of the Megayacht News Radio podcast, we dive into the details with three key members of the SeaKeepers team.
For example, aboard one superyacht, scientists researching humpback whales made an astonishing discovery—something no one previously knew, in fact. You’ll also learn how SeaKeepers joins forces with owners of boats and yachts of all sizes for floating classrooms. Plus, you’ll hear about the vital role E-DNA plays in understanding the oceans, and how citizen scientists are crucial to the cause.
