We posted about this just a little over a month ago. As a scuba diver and pirate plundering to save the planet, this is of huge concern to me. The sea star wasting syndrome seems to be spreading quickly and we still know very little as to what is happening… and WHY.
This video from the Vancouver Aquarium shows about a 7 hour time lapse of a sea star losing its arms. It is disturbing to me to watch.
Vancouver Aquarium is also asking that anyone that is witnessing this to submit a report here. The form can be found by scrolling to the bottom of the page.
