Mystery as Hundreds of Sea Stars Wash Up Dead in Chile

The Bío Bío region of Chile is facing a large starfish mass die-off.

The dead animals are washing up in hundreds along beaches in the commune of Coronel, scaring residents.

The Sernapesca is now investigating the causes of the massive death of hundreds of star fish.

Experts believe the die-off is due to a storm offshore.

The mass death event was discovered on July 16, 2020 in the El Pueblito sector of Playa Blanca.

According to biologists, such mass strandings aren’t so rare around the world – although baffling – and mainly occur in winter.

Well I have never seen so many dead sea stars. What about you?
