Sponges are a vital part of coral reef ecosystems, providing shelter and food to small organisms like algae, shrimp and crabs. They can also serve as a filter, removing up to 95% of bacteria, particles and dissolved organic carbon from the water. These beautiful, underrated creatures may be the future of our reefs, as they are not impacted as negatively as coral are by rising ocean temperatures and ocean acidification.
