Horseshoe Crab and Red Knots situation getting better

It seems that the horseshoe crab conservation efforts are starting to show signs of working. It’s still a little early in the migration to be definitive, but it’s looks good so far. Read “red knots gaining weight in 2009”

This year the horseshoe crab population has shown signs of improved numbers and the red knots that depend on their eggs to give them the energy to complete their journey to their breading grounds in the Artic are getting enought eggs to bring them up to optimum weight.

While this is a very good sign that things are turning around, the red knot population is still critically low and more work has to be done to ensure that the red knot and horseshoe crab population makes a full recovery to previous over harvesting days.
