Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution is dedicated to exploring the world’s oceans, integrating the science and technology of the sea with the needs of humankind. The staff includes over 250 scientists, engineers, mariners and support personnel involved in research and education in the marine sciences, biological, chemical and environmental sciences, marine biomedical sciences, marine mammal conservation, aquaculture and ocean engineering. The Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution offers a wide variety of education programs and products to raise public awareness of the marine environment.

Florida Atlantic University teamed with the Institute in this Marine Science Building that is used for classes and research. SPROUT Roy-Fisher Associates restored the landscape using plantings that were present before the land was cleared many years ago. The landscape plan used entirely native plant material; disturbed areas were restored with native grassland habitat. The irrigation system was designed to wean the grassland area off of additional water usage once established.
