WHO WE ARE

The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation funds scientific research, provides field resources where needed, and hosts educational programs aimed at conserving the environment.

The GHOF will help ensure future generations can enjoy and benefit from a naturally balanced ecosystem.

We believe that everyone has a responsibility to do their part to protect our oceans. Guy Harvey is committed to dedicating part of the proceeds from every merchandise sold to aid GHOF’s marine initiatives.

However – we can’t do this alone. Learn more about us below and how you can help!


"It is our collective responsibility to preserve our marine environment and maintain the biodiversity of this planet”

– Dr. Guy Harvey

Founder

Dr. Guy Harvey founded the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation with 10 board members in 2008. Its original purpose was to provide financial aid to scientific projects that were being delayed due to complicated funding channels. Now it has grown to encompass educational initiatives and provide man power to carry out some of the projects GHOF are involved with. Dr. Harvey has a PhD. in Fisheries Management from the University of the West Indies, Jamaica and uses his lifetime of experience and trained expertise to affect change needed to save our oceans.
