Environmental biologist Neil Harrington is the featured speaker at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center’s “The Future of Oceans” lecture on Sunday, Feb. 9, 3 p.m., at The Chapel at Fort Worden State Park.

“Phytoplankton are wonderous organisms with some fascinating life strategies,” Harrington said. “They form the basis of most marine food webs, however some of them produce biotoxins which can affect humans and animals.”
Harrington has worked for the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe since 2012. His work has focused on harmful algal blooms, shellfish safety, invasive European green crab monitoring and outreach to school children. He has 17 years of experience working on natural resources on the North Olympic Peninsula. He holds a Master of Science in Biological Oceanography from UC Santa Cruz.
