It seems like every time you turn around your hearing about some ocean animal that is having problems. This is a virus that showed up just last year and is affecting 18 different species of starfish. So far they have no idea where this disease came from.Scientists are struggling to find the cause of a disease that is killing off numerous species of starfish on both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of North America, dispatching the five-armed creatures in a particularly gruesome way.
Scientists puzzled by massive North American starfish deaths
I don't know if this disease has been found in other parts of the world but they could go extinct in North American waters this disease is taking such a toll on them.
I wonder if this virus has something to do with pollution.
