Thousands of dead and dying starfish, clams, crabs, and conchs "littering" beaches on Florida's Gulf Coast -- "Everywhere I looked were struggling creatures"

I was stunned at the hordes of colorful little domiciles along the shoreline. ...

Everywhere I looked were struggling creatures. ...

I left thousands of doomed creatures on the beach today.
