SeaKeepers honors Prince Albert II

In a quiet ceremony overlooking the 20th annual Monaco Yacht Show, punctuated by the blaring of the Queen Mary 2’s horns, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco received the 2010 SeaKeepers Award for his work bringing awareness to the care and protection of the world’s oceans.

“I’m touched and honored by this award,” he said once the horns had quieted. “With your help, let’s try to keep caring about our seas and our oceans. It’s vitally important for each and every one of us.”

The International SeaKeepers Society was started 13 years ago by a group of American yacht owners who wanted to do something about the deteriorating condition of the oceans. The first mission was to create and install monitoring systems aboard their yachts.

Now the society has expanded to actively engage in scientific issues around the globe, including the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

“You can have a canoe and be a sea keeper,” said Michael Moore, chairman of the board of the society. “We want to get more people involved, more people in Europe, more crew around the world. It’s for all of us.”
