Horseshoe Crabs are our favorite animal.
While the number of eggs a horseshoe crab mom lays is jaw-dropping, most of the eggs will not survive to adulthood, or even to their hatching point.
Atlantic horseshoe crab populations are currently listed as vulnerable by the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Union)’s Red List of Endangered Species.
Bill Sargent will lead a horseshoe crab monitoring project on Pavilion Beach, Ipswich, MA. July 27 at 3:00 PM.
The cost is $10 per person. Bill Sargent is an SME of Horseshoe Crabs.
