NPR science podcast, Blue Dot, conducted an interview with Dr. Joe Gaydos and Diego Montecino, lead authors of a paper published in Science Advances about the decline of the Sunflower Sea Star in the Pacific northwest. The study's analysis included almost 11,000 REEF surveys collected by our citizen scientists from California to Alaska over the last decade.
