Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve News Alert
01 February 2008
The film “Crash: A Tale of Two Species," featuring the interconnected worlds
of Horseshoe Crabs and Red Knots, is premiering on the PBS program “NATURE”
on 10 February, Sunday, 8 p.m. ET.
The delicate, ecological relationship between Horseshoe Crabs and Red Knots
is vital to the survival of this amazing shorebird species as it migrates
between the Arctic and the tip of South America each year. Nowhere is this
interplay more evident than at Delaware Bay—the first WHSRN Site of Hemispheric
Importance. This film, by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Allison Argo, explores
the issue of both species’ alarming population declines, the economic and
biomedical importance of Horseshoe Crabs to humans, and the urgent conservation
efforts underway at Delaware Bay and elsewhere. For more information and
