Our Horseshoe SOS app has been updated and is now available for those of you hoping to learn more about these amazing animals or even become involved in reporting tagged crabs along the Atlantic Coast. If you're a beach walker, you can use Horseshoe SOS to report horseshoe crabs you spot with a white, round US Fish and Wildlife service tag, just by opening the app and choosing the Report Tag button at the bottom of the main navigation page. NOTE: please use the reporting form, not the telephone number on the tag to report sightings.
This update includes new FAQ and Research sections as well as separate sections covering the other three Asian species of horseshoe crabs. Valuable input, information, new programs and photographs were contributed by ERDG in this version. Many thanks to Glenn and Ariane for all of their assistance! Please download Horseshoe SOS and let us know what you think by using the Feedback email in the slide-out menu of the app. We look forward to your comments!
