The Count: Conserving Long Island’s Horseshoe Crabs
It’s finally ready! After nearly a year of shooting and editing, I completed my newest short documentary – The Count: Conserving Long Island’s Horseshoe Crabs. I interviewed several researchers and citizen scientists working to collect data surveying the horseshoe crab population on Long Island – at a critical time when the Red Knot shorebird (who depend on horseshoe crab eggs for food) were recently added to the federal endangered species list. I really enjoyed working on this film – shooting in my new backyard on the Long Island Sound, meeting many wonderful people working to make sure Long Island’s waterways remain living and thriving, and filming wildlife for the first time.
