International Horseshoe Crab Day

April 14, 2020

The members of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Horseshoe Crab Specialist Group, of which ERDG is a founding member, invite you to celebrate International Horseshoe Crab Day with us on June 20th, 2020, by educating your community about the importance of this ancient mariner and its habitat, both marine and terrestrial. Unfortunately, Covid-19 social distancing guidelines prohibit most public gatherings. However, the power of social media to connect voices in celebration from around the world, is only limited by our imagination. Over the next few months, and particularly on June 20th, please share your celebration with us and those within your sphere of influence, via your social media formats of choice. Collectively, we can overcome the indifference that too often surrounds this remarkable living being. Begining the end of April, through June 20th, ERDG will be posting songs, poems, tales and images in celebration of the world’s four horseshoe crab species, that we have worked to protect for over 25 years. Please join us. Invitation English & Chinese
