The International SeaKeepers Society
"Our Society's mission to promote synergy among citizens, governments, educational institutions and corporations to restore and protect the world's oceans." Patty Elkus, International SeaKeepers Society, Director
The International SeaKeepers Society's Board of Director's held a reception at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography April 23rd, 2008. The venue was the historic and breathtaking ocean view Martin Johnston House.
Lawrance Bailey, Senior Director of Development at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography explained the purpose of the evening. "Scripps Institution of Oceanography has been working with the International SeaKeepers Society for the past several years to develop a pier-based coastal monitoring system. SeaKeepers is providing the funding and the original concept for the monitoring device, and Scripps is upgrading that device to work in coastal conditions. Scripps will set up six instruments on piers in southern California over the next three years to monitor coastal conditions and to provide round the clock information to local governments, scientists, and the public. The SeaKeepers came to La Jolla for a board meeting at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps and to tour the lab of Scripps scientist Eric Terrill who is heading up the coastal monitoring project."
Among the VIP supporters there were Susan Booth, Larry Brooke of General Hydroponics, Patty and Rick Elkus, Mary Zawaideh, Lee Clark and Dr. Jerry Pikolysky, Maryanne Belser, VP SIO Development Lawrance Bailey, Helena Huang, Susan and Craig McClellan, Eric Terrill, Stephen Bennett, Susan Booth, Scottie Brown, Mark Grosvenor, Tony Haymet, Jerry and Maryanna Herbst, Zandra Rhodes, and Patty and Rick Elkus.
Patty Elkus had this to add. "The International Seakeepers Society is proud to be partnering with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in our California Coastal Monitoring Project. This exciting new initiative combines the world renowned scientific and technical expertise of Scripps with the financial resources and marine conservation passion of the Sea-Keepers. In a three-year, $1 million research and development program this project will create instrumentation that can be networked for coastal observing, with the potential of providing high-quality, low-cost, standardized, near-shore oceanographic data to scientists and resource managers around the world. This project is a further example of our Society's mission to promote synergy among citizens, governments, educational institutions and corporations to restore and protect the world's oceans."

Dr. Nigella Hillgarth, the Executive Director for the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, Scripps Institution of Oceanography had this to say. "The Seakeepers reception at Scripps Institution of Oceanography brought together dedicated supporters of our oceans with the scientists that study the seas around us. A truly memorable gathering of those that care about our oceans and are making a difference."
