The SeaStar Foundation is dedicated to the understanding and the protecting of our marine environment. We are utilizing two approaches toward this monumental task. The first approach is by enlisting the enthusiasm of youth in programs, stimulating their curiosity to learn more about this fascinating world. The second part is to assist in field research addressing specific problems that are occurring in our reefs and oceans.
We have assisted the Broward County Marine Magnet Programs for high school students to conduct studies of coral growth along the Florida barrier reefs. We also conducted studies of Great White shark predation patterns in False Bay, South Africa, producing many hours of exciting footage from small boats observing these apex predators feed.These projects have been joint efforts, working with the Pew Institute for Ocean Science at the University of Miami, Reefquest Center for Shark Research and African Shark Eco Charters, to name a few.
In Belize we provided a “Mother Ship” for shark and coral reef studies being conducted by the Pew Institute, and the Guy Harvey Research Institute at Nova Southeastern University
We also provided a vessel for a portion of an Invasive Species Study conducted by The Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute of Florida.
