What is so special about the Horseshoe Crab?

And why must we ensure its survival?

The Horseshoe Crab is one of the oldest surviving species on earth. It was around during the age of the dinosaurs. And it still swims in the ocean today.

But maybe not for long. And that’s bad news for the human race. Because its continued vitality is linked to our own.

Why do we need to ensure the Horseshoe Crab’s survival? How can we do it?


The secret is revealed in the premiere broadcast of Museum Secrets: Inside the American Museum of Natural History
