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.
