1. Please report on the starfish you see on dives... (and on the beach)
    Upload a picture of the beach (topside) where you saw sick stars to instagram with the hashtag #sickstarfish This will put it on a map we are putting together. You will need to make sure geolocation is "on" and you are uploading from the site (not from your house). We are also working on a manual add for the site, but that is not up and running yet. If you dive at a site that has no sick seastars please upload #nosickstarfish that way we can get a baseline as well, and actually see spread over time. Tidepool walkers are also encouraged to become involved as the purple and orange starfish are often visible on low tides and you will be able to see both healthy and sick sea stars, as it is sometimes hard to tell the difference out of water, just take a picture of the starfish and upload it to instagram/twitter/facebook with the #beachstarfish and we'll forward the picture on to the experts. All data collected will be made readily available to researchers.
    This is where data will be showing up in real time at sickstarfish.com

  5. The Clean Water Act took effect 40 years ago Thursday. In 1972, stormwater pollution was nowhere near a top priority. Today, it's taken the lead as the top water contaminator. How bad is it? Puget Sound diver Laura James takes us where nobody wants to go -- inside a stormwater outfall -- to get an upclose look.
