Help us learn more about our horseshoe crab population in South Carolina! We know that horseshoe crabs use the South Carolina coast to lay eggs, or spawn, and our biologists need your help identifying which areas the crabs are using in 2021. Your data will help us better understand these amazing animals and make informed decisions about our shared natural shorelines.

One of the questions below requests the GPS coordinates (latitude and longitude) of your sighting. Please use an application such as Google Maps to find those coordinates before completing the form.

What does horseshoe crab spawning look like? Spawning horseshoe crabs typically occur in groups of two or more crabs along the shoreline. Spawning horseshoe crabs are not single crabs or upside-down, stranded crabs.
