Common Seadragon deaths
Retired Australian Museum malacologist Phil Colman rang during the week to report the deaths of 17 Common Seadragons along northern Sydney beaches. Phil reported the issue to The Manly Daily and has heard from a number of people who have found dead Common Seadragons. He was directed to the New South Wales Dragon Search Project web page that shows a wealth of information including a table displaying beach washup statistics.
