Horseshoe Crab

My family is participating in our third year counting horsehoe crabs for the DEP’s study. This will be our first year tagging these beauties for Prject Limulus. If you live in an area that has horseshoe crabs, please consider getting involved in your local data gathering efforts.

Project Limulus
Just Flip ‘Em Program

I brought my camera with me one dark night last year…

Read about efforts on behalf of the ‘shoes here:

Citizens Campaign
ERDG’s The Horseshoe Crab

Books that I’ve enjoyed:

Crab Wars: A Tale of Horseshoe Crabs, Bioterrorism, and Human Health
Horseshoe Crabs and Shorebirds: The Story of a Food Web


  1. How did I not catch this page before!?!? I love your links. Limulus love!

  2. The drawing was done by my son when he was about 8 yrs old. He was making a field guide at the time and couldn’t resist giving nature a few super powers here and there.

    I’ve requested info on the tagging program but haven’t heard back yet. We want not only to count the ‘shoes but tag them this year.

    Limulus Looooove ❤

  3. Update: We have heard back from the Project Limulus tagging program and we’re on the list for training this spring.
