Guy Harvey to Hold 3rd Annual Ocean Foundation Fundraiser at NSU, Oct. 27


Guy Harvey, Ph.D., a renowned artist and marine conservationist.


The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, which supports research at NSU’s Oceanographic Center (OC), will be holding a fundraising dinner in The Arena at the Don Taft University Center on NSU’s main campus, Oct. 27. Led by Guy Harvey, Ph.D., a renowned artist and marine conservationist, the nonprofit foundation helps ensure that future generations will enjoy and benefit from a naturally balanced ocean ecosystem, where fish and other marine wildlife flourish.

The fundraiser will feature Mahmood Shivji, Ph.D., director of the Guy Harvey Research Institute (GHRI) at the OC and NSU genetics and conservation biology professor. GHRI is dedicated to conducting the research required for conservation and proper management of the world’s wild fishes. Money from the fundraiser will be used to benefit GHRI and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. According to Shivji, the world-renowned research discoveries in shark biology and conservation made at NSU are directly the result of the long-standing generosity of the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and the strong, 10-year partnership between Guy Harvey and NSU.
