Hello coral listers, 

We're currently compiling a global database of mass mortality events of echinoderms. We have a fair bit of info already about older (pre-2000) events but relatively little about events that have occurred in the past 15 years or so. If you have witnessed or are aware of recent (i.e. post-2000) mortality events affecting seastars, urchins or sea cucumbers, anywhere in the world, please let me ( imcote at sfu.ca ) or Jessica Schultz ( jessica.schultz at vanaqua.org ) know. Many thanks.
