New Video Highlights Blue Crab Research at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center

From Katie Sinclair, blue crab intern at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center:



The blue crab is the star of a new video! Ecosystems on the the Edge, a new video series from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, explores threats facing important habitats in the Chesapeake Bay area. Check out the video "Blue Crabs: Top Predator in Peril" above to learn more about the risks to the blue crab population, as well as how this important predator plays a key role in the bay ecosystem. The video also provides a good look at SERC scientists putting their crab wrangling skills to use, and sheds light on some of the past blue crab studies. For more tips on ways to help the blue crab population remain healthy, visit http://ecosystemsontheedge.org/top-predator/.

CBS also published an article based on the video available here.
