Fisheries Scientists with the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife count Atlantic horseshoe crabs during a continuing population survey as the crabs come ashore by the thousands to spawn and lay their eggs on Pickering beach, a national horseshoe crab sanctuary near Little Creek, Delaware, May 20, 2008. The Atlantic horseshoe crab, part of the Atlantic coast ecosystem and a species more than 350million years old, return from deeper water each May and June to spawn and lay their eggs on these beaches at the new and full moon tides. During spawning the crabs form clusters along the water's edge with as many as 12 sattelite males grouped around one female. The females burrow into the sand to lay masses of green eggs which are fetilized by the males The eggs provide essential food for as many as one million migrating shore birds that stop here to feed on the horseshoe crab eggs as their primay food source on their northward migration.

Stewart Michels, a fisheries scientist with the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife, counts Atlantic horseshoe crabs as part of a continuing population survey as they come ashore by the thousands to spawn and lay their eggs on Pickering beach, a national horseshoe crab sanctuary near Little Creek, Delaware, May 20, 2008. The Atlantic horseshoe crab, part of the Atlantic coast ecosystem and a species more than 350million years old, return from deeper water each May and June to spawn and lay their eggs on these beaches at the new and full moon tides. During spawning the crabs form clusters along the water's edge with as many as 12 satellite males grouped around one female. The females burrow into the sand to lay masses of green eggs which are fertilized by the males. The eggs provide essential food for as many as one million migrating shore birds that stop here to feed on the horseshoe crab eggs as their primary food source on their northward migration.

A migrating Red Knot is seen near dead horseshoe crabs on the beach along the Delaware Bay in Fortescue, New Jersey, May 30, 2007. The shorebird is edging closer to extinction, threatened by fishermen who destroy its food staple for bait and loved by ornithologists who are drawn from around the world to count it. The Red Knot, once a numerous springtime visitor to the beaches of the Delaware Bay on the U.S. Atlantic Coast, has declined to an all-time low of 12,300 birds, down from some 15,000 last year and around 100,000 in the mid-1980s.
