Most sea urchins in the caribbean died of a disease during the mid 80’s, which is probably a consequence of pollution and the onset of globalwarming. The disappearance of this grazer has heightened the decline of the reefs through increased algae growth. It is so strange to safely wade into the sea in now on Curacao. In the 70’s you had to be so careful not to step on stingy spikes of a sea-urchin!!
