2016 was an extraordinary year for the reTURN the Favor program. Over 77,000 horseshoe crabs were rescued from bayshore beaches in New Jersey this season – surpassing the total from the first three years combined!
Volunteers and staff from partner organizations pitched in to lead over 500 walks, more than double the number of walks in any previous year. There is a lot of love for horseshoe crabs in New Jersey! Join us next spring for trainings, walks, and beach cleanups.
