WPTV 5 is reporting that Guy Harvey, marine artist and biologist, is heading up an expedition to the Bahamas with a mission of “recording the beauty of sharks.” In addition to Harvey, Jim Abernathy, and artist Wyland, will also be involved in the effort. The group hopes to use shark imagery to encourage people to promote shark conservation.

In other Guy Harvey related news, the University of Florida is reporting that the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation along with Hell’s Bay Boatworks Inc. are donating a research boat and trailer (valued at $50,000) to the university’s shark research program.
