Where to report sea star illness

There's been a renewed call for kayakers in the Salish Sea to report any sightings of sea stars that are ill or decayed, as we reported in an earlier post. There's a website to contact with information that you can share -- the website for Vancouver Aquarium.
Click here to see a description of the problem facing sea stars, and photos of affected animals. Apparently the starfish that are being affected by Sea Star Wasting Syndrome include several species, and no longer only sunflower stars. I know that looking for starfish, healthy or otherwise, is going to be on my mind when I'm on the water.
