Lake Geneva, Wisconsin – IsoTropic Networks, Inc., a global satellite communications provider today announced their continued event sponsorship and support for the International SeaKeepers Society, a non-profit organization that promotes oceanographic research, conservation and education through direct involvement with the world’s yachting community. SeaKeepers enables this community to take full advantage of their unique position to help advance marine science and to raise awareness generally about the issues oceans around the world are facing.
This year’s SeaKeeper Award marks the tenth year for the society and the third sponsorship year for IsoTropic Networks. The Award will be presented during SeaKeepers annual Bal de la Mer event, which will take place in Palm Beach, Florida on October 8th. Each year the prestigious SeaKeeper award is presented to an individual or organization that has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to ocean conservation. The 2016 award recipient is SeaKeepers’ founding member and yachting community pioneer, Alexander W. Dreyfoos. Dreyfoos joins an elite and influential group of leaders in marine conservation including: Monaco’s own H.S.H Prince Rainier III, Jean Michel Cousteau, James Cameron, Dr. Sylvia Earle, and most recently, the 2015 recipient Fabien Cousteau.
IsoTropic Networks has strong ties with the maritime community, and believes deeply in supporting marine philanthropic efforts aligned to their core business.
“We are honored to continue our relationship with SeaKeepers. The sponsorship of the Bal de la Mer and the SeaKeepers Award gives us the opportunity to not only support the International SeaKeepers Society research and education efforts, but to salute the pioneers leading the way in marine conservation.” Melissa Orlick, Director Maritime Communications, IsoTropic Networks.
“With the full formation of SeaKeepers in 1998 following on from the first award presented in 1996, the guiding principle for SeaKeepers has been to foster an understanding on the health of the world’s oceans through the utilization of yachts. Seakeepers has evolved to accomplish its mission today through the DISCOVERY Yachts program. The continued support of valued sponsors such as IsoTropic Networks benefits SeaKeepers DISCOVERY Yacht programming and enables more private vessels to participate in missions focusing on ocean research, education, instrument deployment and exploration. We are pleased programming has increased by over 80% each year since 2013, and are very appreciative of our sponsor’s investment in our efforts.” Richard Snow, President and CEO, The International SeaKeepers Society.
