What Was At Stake
For more than 400 million years – since before dinosaurs roamed the earth – horseshoe crabs have inhabited the world’s oceans. In the past several decades, these prehistoric creatures have been harvested for their bright blue blood. The blood is processed into a substance that detects contamination in a variety of products from vaccines to joint replacements. Synthetic alternatives are now available, and we need your help getting industry to adopt them.
