The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation recently conducted an oyster lab with the STEM middle-school students at The Sanibel School. The youth got to see the water filtering capabilities of oysters and had fun finding the mud crabs, mussels and tunicates attached and hiding in nooks and crannies of bars. The introduction to oysters and the importance of oyster reef habitats in the back bay estuary kicked off a Oyster Habitat Project for the STEM class.
