About This Project

Sponges are nature's filtration systems; they can filter up to 50,000 times their own volume in a day. Changes to coral ecosystems from climate change make reef sponges increasingly important. This project takes one of the first steps to explore the impact of sponges on nutrient availability on coral reefs.

Contributions are tax deductible, and backers will get timely labnote field updates. We invite you to ask questions and connect with us directly in the comments - we'd love to hear from you!
