Event Highlight

Travelling to a Horseshoe Crab Sanctuary Beach (Pickering Beach, DE), the summit delegates could gain hands-on insight into the natural environment of the crabs and to save some crabs that have been stranded on shore. In collaboration with the Ecological Research and Development Group, a non-profit wildlife conservation organization whose primary focus is the conservation of the world's four horseshoe crab species, they had the opportunity to save some crabs stranded on shore and to learn more about the ancient species so important to our industry.
