In 2015 and 2016, hundreds of thousands of dead and dying Common Murres washed ashore in Alaska. In March of 2016, biologists with the National Park Service, US Fish & Wildlife Service, and US Geological Survey set out to Katmai National Park & Preserve to document the number of dead and dying seabirds there.

This video explores Alaska's largest seabird die-off and the survey effort to document its extent at Katmai.
