Horseshoe Crab Census
May 01, 2014 - June 30, 2014
Sunray Beach in Villas and Higbee Beach in Cape May, Cape May County
Horseshoe crabs are ancient arthropods that are vital to the migration of thousands of shorebirds on route to their breeding grounds in the Arctic. Before continuing on their epic 9,000 mile journey, these amazing birds must make an important stop along the Delaware Bay to fill up on horseshoe crab eggs. Help protect this globally important phenomenon through the annual Horseshoe Crab Census. Wear footwear that can get wet. Bring a flashlight or headlamp.
