Expeditions are set for Guatemala, Mexico and Panama to raise funds for ocean conservation and education
The Guy Harvey Foundation (GHF) kicks off a series of excursions this summer with trips planned for Guatemala, Mexico and Panama to engage the public and to highlight the important research work being done in these countries. Proceeds from Guy Harvey Expeditions fund conservation efforts through the Foundation’s research and educational programs.
Guy Harvey Expeditions are designed to foster ocean conservation and to raise public awareness about the critical significance of our marine ecosystems. These expeditions offer participants the unique opportunity to actively engage in a diverse range of oceanic activities.

About Guy Harvey
Guy Harvey is a unique blend of artist, scientist, diver, angler, conservationist and explorer, fiercely devoted to his family and his love of the sea. His childhood passion for the ocean and its living creatures not only inspired him to draw, but fueled a burning interest that prompted a formal education in marine science. Having graduated with honors in Marine Biology from Aberdeen University in Scotland in 1977, Guy returned home to Jamaica to resume his education, earning his Ph.D. from the University of the West Indies in 1984. Though he gave up a budding career as a marine biologist for that of a highly acclaimed artist, Guy has continued his relentless pursuit to unravel the mysteries of the sea, traveling the world to better understand the habits and habitats of the marine wildlife he paints.
