Catch and Release

If you’re going to consider the horseshoe crab, you need to take a few steps back (and a deep breath) to understand the big picture and context of the its existence, the implications of being labeled Endangered, and of even being identified as a species. And with that there’s the destroyer-rescuer role that humans play. I explain human enchantment with the horseshoe crab and at the same time relate it directly to some very hard truths.

Keywords:   Endangered, destroyer-rescuer role, human enchantment, species
