Discovery Channel Daily Planet! Scientist Ben Miner, DiverLaura and the rest of Ben's WWU team searching for answers...
It was quite a week, The Starfish story continues to reach new outlets... Filming and interviewing for America's Now, a photo shoot with Seattle Magazine, and it culminated with a trip to Keystone Jetty to survey the seastars on Whidbey Island. We saw only a few sick individuals.
It was great to see healthy sunflower stars, I haven't seen any nice big ones down in Puget Sound (by Seattle) for several months.
Barb the producer reached out to me a few weeks back, as she was doing a story with Professor Ben Miner from WWU and wanted the citizen scientist / underwater filmmaker view of the epidemic. Twist my arm? ;)
Watch for the full episode on an upcoming Discovery Channel Daily Planet! (I have a bit part and shot some UW footage)
