Hi all (and sorry for any cross postings),

As you may or may not be aware of, there is evidence that we are at the onset of a Sea Star Wasting disease event. We have created a page on our website with more information, as well as a map to track the presence/absence of the disease:



We encourage you to fill out the Sea Star Disease Tracking log if you notice the presence OR absence of wasting disease, and include the GPS coordinates so that we can update the map. The current map only has information up to 10/4/2013; we will update the website regularly as we receive information.

Please forward this information to anyone else who might be interested, and thanks for helping us gather and consolidate this information!
