A talk on our "living fossil" - horseshoe crab in Hong Kong

A talk on our "living fossil" - horseshoe crab in Hong Kong

The horseshoe crab, known as the "living fossil", is the oldest species on earth and has survived on Earth for more than 400 million years. Their unique blue blood can be made into Tachypleus Amebocyte Lysate (TAL) which is an efficient detector for bacterial endotoxins. It has a tremendous contribution to our medical development. What are horseshoe crabs? How can we protect them?  What are the major threats they are facing? Just sign up for the talk and learn more about horseshoe crabs.
