Beat the Heat Summer Film Series - Crash: A Tale of Two Species

7 p.m. This is the story of the fabric of life, and how every species is interconnected.  At its center is the humble horseshoe crab, a creature which has remained virtually unchanged for 350 million years. Its annual spring spawning produces millions of eggs that are the lifeline for a tiny bird called the red knot. Scientific and medical communities have discovered the crab provides an indispensable testing agent for drugs and vaccines. But their new use as bait for the fishing industry places the future of horseshoe crab in jeopardy. Please join us tonight at the Cold Spring Harbor Library for a special screening of this important film. Location: Cold Spring Harbor Library, 95 Harbor Road, Cold Spring Harbor. No registration required. Go to www.hobaudubon.org for more information.
