Nova names building for Harvey

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) has named its newest research facility the Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center in honor of the marine artist’s financial and research support.

Opened in 2012, the center is a five-story, 87,000-square-foot research facility at the Port Everglades inlet.

NSU has worked with Harvey for years through the Guy Harvey Research Institute (GHRI), where researchers and students study and learn about all aspects of the marine ecosystem.

The building will also be identified on its roof, giving exposure to millions of travelers who fly into or out of Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport each year.

“I am honored to have my name on such a high profile building in South Florida that is doing cutting-edge marine science research,” Harvey said. “It is the latest and most significant step in an incredible partnership with NSU that began 16 years ago. And it is my hope that the work that will be done in the future in this building will make a significant difference in the lives of many individuals and the conservation of our oceans’ resources.”

As well as being a marine wildlife artist, Harvey also holds a doctorate degree in fisheries biology. He started GHRI in 1999.
