'Melting' Sea Star

'Melting' Sea Star

Linda Moulton Howe shares two images to accompany her 12/19/13 presentation. On top a healthy, vibrant morning sun sea star. Below, a dead morning sun star among tens of thousands found dead in October 2013, from a wasting disease that "melted" the sea stars in Howe Sound, Indian Arm, Defence Island, other regions near Vancouver, B.C., Canada and Puget Sound north of Seattle.The die-off extends south to Santa Cruz, California, and north up to parts of the Alaska coast. A similar melting syndrome is also killing sea stars on the East Coast from New Jersey to Rhode Island and Maine.
