Taras Foundation with Director and CEO Dr. Stefan Harzan

Wednesday, June 8, 2022

The Taras Oceanographic Foundation, founded in 1998, is headquartered in Jupiter. The Foundation looks to increase the awareness of the threats dolphins and the oceans face. It is named after Taras, the son of Poseidon, who, when Taras was shipwrecked, rescued him by sending a dolphin, which Taras rode to traverse the sea to the south of Italy. Brought ashore, Taras founded the city of Tarentum, today known as Taranto.

Raised in Germany, Dr. Harzan spent a good portion of his life in Portugal before arriving in the U.S.  He has been studying since his early twenties, however, his interest and expertise have long expanded to include sustainability, experience tourism, hospitality, waste management and performance metrics. Dr. Harzan has used his wide range of knowledge and cross-cultural experiences to advise leaders on how to best prepare for the future.
