Evening at Skidaway – Wonderful World of Plankton

November 6, 2018 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm

When most people think of marine life, plankton aren’t usually the first things that come to mind. Yet, although they are frequently overlooked and most can’t even be seen without a microscope, plankton are a vital part of the ocean’s ecosystem. Plankton form the base of the marine food web and produce approximately half the oxygen in the atmosphere, making them a key element to all life on Earth.

University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Elizabeth Harvey studies plankton, the way they live and, especially, the way they die. She will present an Evening @ Skidaway program to explore these amazing plants and animals on Tuesday, November 6, in the McGowan Library on the University of Georgia Skidaway Marine Science Campus (10 Ocean Science Circle, Savannah, GA 31411). The event will begin with a reception at 6:15 p.m., followed by the program at 7 p.m.

The program is open to the public, and admission is free. Space is limited. To reserve a seat, please call (912) 598-2325 or email mike.sullivan@skio.uga.edu.
