In Washington State in June 2013, scientists observed sea stars dying. Within days, the animals' arms walked off in different directions & their entire bodies melted into goo. At first, scientists observed a high level of wasting at 39 percent of sites surveyed in central and northern California. By the summer of 2014, it had soared to 87 percent.

The sunflower star, one of the world's largest sea stars, preys upon red and purple sea urchins. With widespread sea star die-offs, urchins are coming out of hiding along the central California coast.

Sunflower star (Pycnopodia helianthoides): The sunflower star is the largest sea star in the world, reaching an armspan of 3.3 feet. That space is taken up by 16-24 arms. They're found along the coast of North America, from Alaska to California, but they're largest in the northern areas. They dine on sea urchins, clams and snails and are usually found in subtidal areas where there is always water, since they can't support their bodies out of water.

A harmful algal bloom is the suspected culprit of a die-off in 2011 of millions of purple sea urchins and six-starred sea stars in Northern California. Their disappearance is predicted to have long-term ecological consequences on their populations. As algal blooms are expected to increase with climate change and ocean acidification, similar mass mortality events are expected to increase, experts say. After a die-off in 2011, only burrows in the bedrock remained where once thrived millions of…
