Students learn about conservation and the horseshoe crab

I read an interesting story I came across about how more than 80 students from all over Maryland made it a classroom project to raise and release horseshoe crabs into the wild.

This is a great way for students to learn about how one seemingly unimportant species can play an important role in the ecological web and also their importance to even our own lives.

They also learn about how to protect our environment and to get some hands on experience in how it feels to take an active role in preserving our planet.

This program and others like it should be available as part of the curriculum of middle and high schools and maybe even made mandatory in schools nation wide.
