The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation has been building reefs off the Jupiter coastline for several years. The Foundation was created to honor the memory of Andrew Harris who was struck by a boat while snorkeling in the Jupiter Inlet on June 8, 2014. The foundation’s work will help assure the long-term health and vibrancy of the local marine environment where Andrew loved to dive and fish.

The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation began a significant education initiative in 2018. The goal was to donate a 5-book set of the “Professor Clark the Science Shark” series to every third-grade classroom in Florida, 55,000 books in all!  As you can imagine that goal has been met and enthusiastically received!!

Children love the story of the little boy (Andrew) who becomes lifelong friends with an orphaned tiger shark pup. The marine animals communicate their needs through Andrew to the human world. Together they clean up a reef and a beach and then help save a sick turtle as they teach Florida children to love the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and our rivers and lakes. 

The Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation continues to build productive new reefs on unproductive sites off the shores of northern Palm Beach County.  Their goal is to help the marine habitat can keep pace with the increasing pressure on it from a variety of destructive influences including population growth and climate change.  This undertaking benefits the public by enhancing the enjoyment and satisfaction of the Southeast Florida lifestyle and marine environment. 

If you are interested in donating to the Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation, please visit here.  A donation in the name of a “hard to shop for person” can make a wonderful, poignant gift, and an everlasting gift!
