Marine biologist Sheila Byers of the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at UBC will present on The Unique and Ancient Glass Sponge Reefs of Howe Sound. British Columbia’s glass sponge reefs have been called one of the great wonders of the world’s ocean, yet few people have heard of them. The rare reefs are composed of living sponges and fossilized skeletons, made of fragile silica (glass).
