Intl SeaKeepers Society

I don't think we have mentioned SeaKeepers Society earlier here.
This how this organization describes itself:

"The International SeaKeepers Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that actively protects the oceans by equipping luxury yachts, other vessels, and platforms around the world with sophisticated ocean and atmospheric monitoring sensors. These compact, high-tech monitors gather and transmit via satellite to the international scientific community critically-needed data on the health of the oceans, changing weather and climate patterns, sources of pollution and other threats to human life and marine resources. "

Octopus is among the megayachts having been equipped with a SeaKeeper 1000 monitoring system. Paul Allen is one of several well-known founding members. There is a complete list in the Newsletter.
Some 50 yachts and cruise ships are quipped with monitoring systems.
