Salt Pier Sponge Protection

What a super cool experience to move the sponges down the pilings at Salt Pier!

We were invited to join Caren at STINAPA to help protect the sponges that have attached to the pylons on Salt Pier. We were equipped with gloves, scissors and a mesh bag and set out to cut the fishing line around the sponges that had securely attached already and replace the line and/or move some sponges to a more secure location inside an already secured line. This process keeps the sponges from falling off the pylon until they are secure enough to stick on their own.
