reTURN the Favor with HousePaws

We are looking for 25 volunteers to help us rescue overturned or impinged horseshoe crabs stranded on New Jersey’s Delaware Bay beaches during their spawning season. Great for ages 10+

No Harm No Fowl events are events where no animals are harmed. We will be helping animals and then enjoy a packed vegan lunch on the beach.

$25 per person — goes to the BooTiki Fund.

Delaware Bay has the largest spawning population of horseshoe crabs in the world. In May and June each year horseshoe crabs use the Delaware Bay beaches to lay their eggs. At the same time shorebirds are migrating from South America to Arctic breeding grounds. To complete this journey – up to 9,000 miles long – shorebirds stop over in the Delaware Bay region to refuel on the high-calorie horseshoe crab eggs. Join us to help rescue horseshoe crabs while learning more about these unique creatures, migrating shorebirds, and the Delaware Bay.
