Help Create a Historical Record

ERDG is looking for historical photos of spawning beaches throughout the last century. Of special interest are images that show horseshoe crab spawning activity, but photos of typical spawning beaches are also of interest to us.

We are planning to create a visual record of the spawning beaches that we have listed in our Crab Sightings section, with links to historical photos that show changes in habitat. Digital images would be greatly appreciated, but we are happy to scan your photos and then return them to you. If you have any old photographs, we'd love to borrow them.

Please contact Glenn Gauvry at ERDG for more information.
