Volunteers needed August 16, 2017 in Ocean City, New Jersey to assist Local Representative Beth Carducci in handing out hermit crab caresheets. There has been talk of ending the pageant after this year. If that is the case we will shift our focus to another similar event.
Pageant details: http://www.oceancityvacation.com/details/2288-miss-crustacean-hermit-crab-beauty-pageant.html
Thousands of hermit crabs are doomed to death in the boardwalk shops, we want to help as many as we can survive after they are taken home.
If you aware of an event involving hermit crab racing, pageants or carnival giveaway please email us at crabstreetjournal at gmail.com
The boardwalk giftshops are a hermit crab house of horrors. They clearly care more about the plastic, overpriced garbage than the living animal which is why the crab is free or super cheap. This needs to be stopped.
Have you ever wondered how they get the hermit crabs into the painted shells? It’s not nice.
