Horseshoe Crabs Endangered by Biomedical Bloodletting
"We monitored more than 115 sites on Long Island for over 17 years and found that horseshoe crab habitat has declined by more than 8 percent," says John Tanacredi, Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Molloy College and director of the Center for Environmental Research and Coastal Oceans Monitoring (CERCOM). "Loss of habitat means loss of breeding animals, clearly seen in the long-term decline in horseshoe crabs in the area by about 1 percent per year."
