The American Littoral Society’s new Ask a Scientist series features our expert staff answering your questions.
For the first installment in the series, we are joined by Quinn Whitesall McHerron, Delaware Bayshore Habitat Restoration Coordinator, to answer your questions about horseshoe crabs. She has been managing the Society’s horseshoe crab tagging program since 2014. Through the years, she has introduced thousands of people to these living fossils and the wonders of Delaware Bay.
Quinn and the tagging program have been featured on several programs, including a Japanese variety show “Sekai no Hate Made ItteQ!” and the television series Xploration Awesome Planet, as well as several news articles, publications, and a podcast.
Her passion for the coastal environment was evident before she joined the Littoral Society. She received her B.S. in Marine Science at Stockton University and is currently pursuing the Professional Science Master Coastal Zone Management Program at Stockton.
This video was filmed at Reeds Beach in Cape May County, NJ. Joining Quinn on the sand is Zach Nickerson, Conservation Coordinator for the Littoral Society.
We were inspired at the 2022 Restore America’s Estuaries Conference to start this series, and we wanted to thank San Francisco Estuary Partnership for helping us bring the idea to New Jersey!
