Photographic Exhibit: Life in the Extreme Deep
A new photographic exhibit in the museum lobby showcases the research of Harvards Loeb Associate Professor of Natural Sciences Peter R. Girguis and stunning deep-sea photographs by scientists who work in the field with Professor Girguis. Girguis addresses issues surrounding the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill and what biologists are doing to understand how natural oil-eating microbes are able to aid in the cleanup. Life in the Extreme Deep will remain on display through June 2012.
The Harvard Museum of Natural History is located at 26 Oxford Street, a 7-8 minute walk through historic Harvard Yard from the Harvard Square T station. Open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, except major holidays. Admission: $9.00; seniors and students $7.00; $6.00 ages 3-18; under 3 free.
