Horseshoe Crab Returning to Bay-Slaughter Beach, DE.

Slaughter Beach is one of the main breeding spots for the horseshoe crab. They get flipped by the waves as the tide changes. Locals walk the beach in the mornings and flip crabs so they can return to the water. Flipping has been key to the conservation program.
