Horseshoe Crab

Matt Sclafani, Cornell Cooperative Extension / Stony Brook University. Learn all about the amazing horseshoe crabs, creatures that survived five mass extinctions, lived alongside dinosaurs, and play a crucial role in human health today. These “living fossils” travel frim the oceans to our local bays every spring, and our volunteers, venture out at night to monitor them under the light of the moon. Visit us to learn more about these fascinating animals and find out how you can get involved!
