Horseshoe Crabs: a fascinating conservation study
Apr 23
Livingston Public Library
Livingston - Program Room

Thursday, April 23 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Livingston Public Library

If you have headed ‘down the Shore’ in summer, you may have brushed up against a few horseshoe crabs on the beach – and had hardly given a thought to these odd, distant relatives of spiders. Yet horseshoe crabs are 300 million-year-old living fossils that are so valuable that in the late 1990s they became the center of a perfect storm of competing interests.New Jersey environmentalist Tedor Whitman will tell us why commercial fisheries, tourism officials, ornithologists, government (local, county, state, and federal) agencies, and pharmaceutical interests all fought to determine the use and future of these animals. Fortunately, the fate of the horseshoe crab fell into the hands of a resourceful biological technician and a handful of determined citizens.Tedor Whitman is the Executive Director of the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum and Bird Sanctuary in Short Hills. He has over 25 years of experience teaching and leading conservation programs across a wide range of U.S. ecosystems.
