Guy Harvey Magazine dolphin tagging article






Guy Harvey is well-known as a marine artist, but he is also an advocate for conservation of all ocean species. Whether donating a portion of his profits to a special cause like the Gulf Oil Spill, or the long-term funding of his oceanographic institute in Florida, there can be no denial that he puts an emphasis on financial support of his causes. When the first edition of Guy Harvey Magazine came out, about the time of the opening of Guy Harvey's restaurant in Mount Pleasant, Jeff Dennis knew that the story of S.C.'s local dolphin-tagging guru Don Hammond needed to be told. And the story goes something like this, Hammond's local program is going worldwide and Guy Harvey magazine, which is billed as 'The Art of Ocean Conservation," is helping to raise awareness about dolphin tagging for research purposes. Jeff's story on Hammond's program is posted under the 'conservation' section of the Guy Harvey Magazine website.
