“Extending from Pea Patch Island in New Castle County to the City of Lewes in Sussex County, the Delaware Bay shoreline is widely recognized as an area of global ecological significance. Its expansive coastal marshes, shoreline, agricultural lands and forests provide diverse habitat to many species, including migratory shorebirds. Birders and biologists from around the world come to central Delaware to witness the annual spring spectacle of more than a half million shorebirds taking a rest stop to dine on eggs laid by spawning horseshoe crabs.” Read more and take the survey here ..

The Delaware Alliance of Bay Communities “encourages the repair, improvement, and preservation of the environment of natural and engineered beaches, the streams, waterways, wildlife habitat, numerous ecosystems, and public lands which surround the communities impacted by the Delaware Bay and watershed.”
The primary focus of the ERDG is “the conservation of the world’s four remaining horseshoe crab species.”
