Since 2011 MVSG's Shell Recovery Partnership has collected shells from restaurants and events for use in their oyster restoration projects in Tisbury and Edgartown Great Ponds. Although they are most often thrown away as trash, shells are a valuable natural resource. They provide substrate for settling oyster larvae and buffer against coastal acidification, which threatens calcifying animals like shellfish. Hear from Biologist and Executive Director, Emma Green-Beach, how shells are being recycled to build oyster habitat and improve the health of the ponds.
