Wellfleet Bay has been awarded a $50,000 grant by the Massachusetts Environmental Trust to go beyond our annual horseshoe crab spawning surveys and actually track where the crabs travel and hang out. One goal is to determine whether Wellfleet Harbor’s crabs are part of a wider population that moves around Cape Cod Bay or a local population that sticks to the harbor and requires special protection.
