research
In 1971, Harbor Branch was founded in the spirit of exploration through the support of J. Seward Johnson Sr. and the innovative vision of famed inventor, Edwin A. Link. Fulfilling their dream of preserving the environment by researching our oceans, Johnson and Link shared a passion that made an indelible impact on oceanographic research. FAU Harbor Branch Founders Society members ensure Johnson and Link’s vision through their generous support of Ocean Science for a Better World®.
