Starfish and sea urchins counteract our carbon emissions

Out of the estimated 5.5 gigatonnes of carbon emitted each year by human activities, about 1.8 percent are removed from the air and stored by echinoderms such as starfish, sea urchins, brittle stars and sea lilies.

A few years back scientists became aware that Amazonian manatees (Trichechus inunguis) migrate from shallow to deep water each year, starting in October or November when the dry season makes the water level decrease in their favoured habitat.
