Glass Sponge Reefs: Citizen Science and Conservation Achievements

 

 

with Shiela Byers
 
 

MLSS (Marine Life Sanctuaries Society) citizen science has been instrumental in the discover and documentation of glass sponge reefs within Howe Sound for the past three decades. Inexpensive equipment used to map the sponge reefs and photographic images by SCUBA divers have provided critical evidence of the biological significance of the sponges and deep reef communities that they build. The goal of the presentation is to reach a better understanding of why sponge reef ecosystems (biology, structure and function) are important to marine life. Such research contributions provide science-based evidence that support Fisheries and Oceans conservation goals to protect sensitive habitats such as glass sponge reefs.
