The Problem

We want to help save horseshoe crabs when they come to our NJ shore to spawn. Thousands of horseshoe crabs die during this time because they get stuck on beach impediments. We want to educate the public about how to save horseshoe crabs when they go to the beach and how important they are to humans and shore birds. We will make a commercial, a public service announcement.

Our Plan

We will teach people how to rescue horseshoe crabs and about the importance of horseshoe crabs. We will republish this PSA annually during ibg the horseshoe spawn season. It has the potential to involve hundreds of people in the horseshoe crab rescue effort. When people visit NJ’s beaches, they will be educated I how to rescue the horseshoe crabs if they see them stranded. This project has already been published and has been viewed several thousand times in the target area!
