Australian Beaches Closed After Jellyfish Stings

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Thursday, January 10, 2019

There was a rash of jellyfish stings over the past month in Queensland, Australia.

Over the past weekend over 3,500 people were stung.

Since December 1 20,000 people have been stung.

Officials have closed beaches as a result.

The particular group of jellyfish, known as bluebottles, typically live in the middle of the ocean.

Climate change could be the reason behind the species moving closer the shore.
