Sir Richard Branson and America’s favorite zookeeper Jack Hanna were among the special guests that joined world-renowned artist, conservationist and scientist Dr. Guy Harvey for the 12th Annual Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (GHOF) Banquet and Auction.
Dr. Guy Harvey and his daughter Jessica, project manager for GHOF, hosted this year’s fundraiser which, like most events in the past 10 months, was held virtually. Through donations and proceeds from the online auction, the GHOF far exceeded their fundraising goal to help support their research, education and ocean conservation programs for 2021. The GHOF is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the seas, supporting groundbreaking research and helping foster the next generation of ocean conservationists.
During the event guests were up close and personal with sharks and other marine life in their natural habitat as Dr. Harvey and Jessica navigated viewers through international waters. The video was highlighted by spectacular footage of ocean expeditions, close encounters with marine wildlife, the tagging and tracking of sharks and information on various research studies that are underway. The evening ended with a special musical performance by one of Dr. Harvey’s all-time favorite bands, The Wailers. @DrGuyHarvey
