GHM Spring Issue – Get Educated!

“By: Fred Garth, Guy Harvey Magazine Editor-in-Chief”

 

Sports Illustrated has their Swimsuit Issue, Fortune Magazine has their Fortune 500 and now, Guy Harvey Magazine has The Education Issue. Marine scientist, Dr. Guy Harvey, who is most well known for his stunning marine artwork, is passionate about 15COVER_finalteaching kids about the oceans. So he created The Education Issue and sent copies to every school in the state of Florida – from the elementary level to all of the colleges in the state.

 

“I began my career as a college professor,” Dr. Harvey said, “so my interest in educating our youth about the marine environment and the importance of conservation is very strong.”

 

The spring issue of the magazine, which is also available on newsstands beginning in April, includes inspirational articles about young students doing research work in the classroom and in the field. There’s also an eight-page article outlining marine-oriented travel opportunities and camps for students from the SEA Lab in Redondo Beach, California to Marineland in St. Augustine, Florida.

 

Also included in Guy Harvey’s Education issue is a poster called Sharks of the World featuring illustrations by Harvey of 19 of the GH Sharks of the World Poster GHRI copy1  11ocean’s most important shark species. One of Harvey’s major conservation efforts has been to stop the decimation of the planet’s shark population. It’s estimated that some 70 million sharks are butchered each year for their fins to supply the Asian shark fin soup market.

 

For the past decade, Dr. Harvey and his expedition team have been tagging sharks all over the world with satellite tags that track their movements and gather information more about their migration patterns.

 

“In order to save sharks, we have to know as much about them as possible,” Harvey said. “These are an apex predators that have survived for millions of years. Now their greatest threat is man.”

 

The inaugural edition of the Education Issue is already receiving high praise from members of the educational and marine communities. To learn more, go to www.guyharveymagazine.com
