Halmos College Welcomes International SeaKeepers Society


On February 23, the Halmos College Department of Marine and Environmental Studies hosted Tony Gilbert from the International SeaKeepers. His talk was entitled, “Discovery Yachts: How SeaKeepers Can Help You Gather the Data You Need.” Faculty and students learned how SeaKeepers can assist them on their maritime research projects.

The International SeaKeepers Society supports marine science and conservation by utilizing yachts as platforms for marine research, educational outreach, and to deploy oceanographic instruments. Their efforts eliminate vessel costs and permit scientists to allocate those funds to maximize research.
