    Life in the Extreme Deep - Lecture by Peter Girguis

    The Gulf of Mexico oil spill 2010 was the largest accidental marine disaster in history, dumping nearly 5 million barrels into the ocean, causing extensive damage to marine and wildlife habitats, and to the Gulf's fishing and tourism industries. Peter Girguis, Loeb Associate Professor of Natural Sciences at Harvard, will discuss how biologists are working with environmental and industry officials to understand how natural “oil-eating” microbes are able to aid in the cleanup.

    A reception to follow in the museum’s new photographic exhibition, Life in the Extreme Deep, a collection of deep-sea photographs by scientists who work in the field with Professor Girguis.
