It is once again Horseshoe Crab Watch season, and Sea Grant Florida needs all the community support it can get. If you are interested to help, don’t forget to join the horseshoe crab tagging workshop Friday, Aug. 19th from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM.
This training will prepare you in assisting biologists in collecting data about horseshoe crabs, especially their population and nesting behavior. Learn how to conduct surveys, collect scientific information and tag horseshoe crabs for a nationwide mark recapture study.
