ICFRC: Saving the World's Coral Reefs

Listen to an audio podcast of this program.

For over the last 20 years, Keith Sahm has been in a managerial role of Sunset House in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. He is an accomplished diver, strategist, hotelier and marketer. Offering a rare blend of creative and operational strengths, he is a former board member of the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association (DEMA) and Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA). Keith was one of the first to install coral farms in the Cayman Islands and co-founder of the island's NGO "Save Cayman". He has been a guest speaker at numerous DEMA events and was named "Diver of the Year" in 2015 by Beneath the Sea for his role in promoting SCUBA recreation, training, safety and advocate for the seas. He is also the Co-Founder of a "mission therapy" nonprofit known as Force Blue.

FORCE BLUE is the only nonprofit organization in the world that provides "mission therapy" for former combat divers - individuals in whom governments around the world have invested millions to create the best possible underwater and maritime operators - by retraining, retooling and deploying them on missions of conservation, preservation and restoration. By uniting the community of Special Operations veterans with the world of marine science and conservation in one, mission-focused program, FORCE BLUE has created a model of caring, cooperation and positive change with the power to restore lives and restore the planet.
