Horseshoe Crabs

Horseshoe Crab Alternative Bait Project Fundraiser

Horseshoe Crabs, are pre-historic time travelers, that visit our local beaches every spring for their nuptial reunion. They are an important part of our marine ecosystems and to our own survival, and today they need your help. Horseshoe crab populations are declining in the New York region as they are a highly valued bait. CCE Marine Program has been working with the New York State DEC and volunteers to monitor populations of horseshoe crabs all over Long Island, and we are now looking to expand on this work by testing out an alternative bait which was developed by scientists at the University of Delaware. Please consider helping out this important cause by donating today!
