In 1971, our founder J. Seward Johnson Sr. of the Johnson & Johnson family, in collaboration with famed inventor Edwin A. Link, had a vision to create an institute to preserve the environment through a scientific understanding of the ocean, and, 50 years later, that is how we continue to view our research.
Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is a world-class research organization with a focus on exploring marine environments, studying key species and understanding the connection between humans and the ocean. Located in St. Lucie County, Florida, our 144-acre campus along the Indian River Lagoon employs over 200 scientists, engineers, educators, staff and students. To this day, the Institute actively pursues solution-oriented research that addresses some of the most critical issues affecting coastal zones, oceans and human well-being.
By celebrating and supporting our 50th Anniversary, your organization will become a part of the legacy that has long informed ocean science research and global conservation efforts. Your unique position as a sponsor of our milestone celebration will provide your organization with exposure to a community that so deeply cares about the most pressing environmental issues of our time.
