Find these drifters on the boardwalk

ADVERTISEMENT

They’re back.

Those artsy buoys decorated by some of Miami’s top artists have made their way to Palm Beach this week. It’s the International SeaKeepers Society’s effort to bring awareness to its Drifter program. They are actually environmental monitoring devices that float along local and global currents transmitted data to NOAA to help identify patterns of marine debris accumulation and assist in hurricane prediction models.

Take a selfie with one of the drifters and be entered into a drawing for a dinner at Morton’s, The Steakhouse in Palm Beach and a basic SeaKeepers membership. E-mail photos to media@seakeepers.org by Sunday at midnight. The winner will be picked at random from all those entered and will be notified on Tuesday.

It’s not really a scavenger hunt, since we know where they are. Find a drifter at Horizon Yachts (ramp 1), Denison Yacht Sales (ramp 2), Westport Yachts (ramp 4), Allied Marine (ramp 5), Ocean Alexander (ramp 6), Bradford Marine (ramp 7), Northrop & Johnson (ramp 8), All Ocean Yachts (ramp D), Burgess (ramp D), IYC (ramp D), Merle Wood & Associates (ramp D), and Worth Avenue Yachts (ramp D).
