A partnership for island preservation

Seacology, a non-profit environmental organization focused on the preservation of island biodiversity and cultures around the world, has announced a partnership with Professional Captain's Services, the Megayacht Division of West Marine.

The Berkeley, Calif.-based organization recently partnered with the supplier of yachting-related products and services to help protect critical island locations.

"It was clear to me from the moment I heard about Seacology that it was the beginning of something great," said Thomas "Charlie" Petosa, general manager of Professional Captain's Services, in a statement.

"The megayacht market would not exist the way it does today without the precious islands of the world, and will not continue to progress if those involved do not protect those islands and their surrounding environments," he added. "I cannot think of a more appropriate partner than Seacology to collaborate with in our mutual sustainability efforts."
