Gearing up for my middle of the night Horseshoe crab eco adventure as a Citizen Scientist! I learned how to tag, classify crabs and record data about them. I’m participating in a study at Calf Pasture Beach in Connecticut with the Maritime Aquarium and Sacred Heart University.
The study’s objective is to tag 600 horseshoe crabs this mating season and inventory their population to gain insights about them and their environment.
It’s uncommon for me to participate in an outdoor event in the middle of the night ...unless it's a trip to the airport! It’s a step outside my comfort zone and I can’t wait to begin!
Where do you eco adventure?
