Who we are
Seventeen years ago Vanessa Pike-Russell created a Yahoo group to bring together hermit crab hobbyists. In 2016 The Crabstreet Journal will celebrate fifteen years on it’s own domain as the online magazine for the Land Hermit Crab Owners Society. Today CSJ is co-managed by Vanessa and Stacy Griffith. Both recognize the importance of providing accurate care information in partnership with outreach to improve the overall care and handling of captive hermit crabs. CSJ has always been a labor of love; we provide our resources free of charge to all visitors.
The Crabstreet Journal print magazine was featured in the motion picture Girl Least Likely starring Annette Benning, Matt Dillon and Kristen Wiig. Vanessa and Stacy both have photos featured in World Book Animals. Vanessa collaborated on Hermit Crabs for Dummies, co-wrote another book and authored yet another.
CSJ is the flagship site and online magazine for the Land Hermit Crab Owners Society (founded 1999). Our website includes land hermit crab caresheets, information on housing and nutrition. We have forums as well as a library of research documents. Our members submit product reviews, pet store reviews, recipes and testimonials. We actively advocate for better care of hermit crabs in pet stores through community outreach and social media campaigns. Our local representatives visit local pet stores to share caresheets. One ongoing campaign is the No Painted Shells campaign.
