3 The power of expression from our young environmental stewards is a vastly underutilized resource. Through ERDGs website and annual traveling art show, these voices are united throughout the world in celebration of the horseshoe crab. Young Voices: Horseshoe Crabs and the Arts This 1999 poster was compiled from 8 entries of students from the 4th grade class at Rodgers Ford E.S. Towson, MD.

4 Over the past decade, thousands of students have contributed to this collective voice, sharing their heartfelt expression through poems, stories, images and musical compositions. The slides to follow showcase the power of their works. Young Voices: Horseshoe Crabs and the Arts We believe that through art we can change the negative image of an animal, which plants the seed of compassion for all living beings.

31 The waves that lick The bottom of my bare feet Touch the clandestine interiors Of living relics. Along uneven shore lines That call out for mercy, Profound simplicity marks A complicated evolution Of armored creatures Who echo the past, present, and future. This is life! It beckons to us all. To save, to shelter, to turn over on golden sands. To release back into the tumult of the great green foam of ocean, A welcoming ocean full of potential and cyclical motions. Hands grasp slick shells in an effort to cause change. To forge a positive note in a winding-down, Slow motion, falling off, sort of song. This is life.

40 Survivor The scientists say I am a survivor. They believe only those best fitted to this landscape are spared from this "evolution" they believe in so strongly. I cannot speak to that. I know only my own life as an everyday survivor. My ancestors watched tide after tide, light after darkness, in an endless cycle. They have seen a parade of new, exotic animals thrive, become fewer, grow weary, and disappear. Through all of this, I have remained. I have survived. My world is not so very different from any other creature's. I know times of trouble, helpless moments in which I cling desperately to my instinct to survive. Given the chance, I and my descendents might see a million more sunrises, a billion more tides. As you walk, transient, ever-changing, along the shores of my home, realize my plight. Remember my legacy. Art by: Chris Ferrante, grade 7 Ctr. Community Arts, Cape May NJ Poem by: Jenn Hubbs, Grade 11 Hammond H.S., Columbia, MD

61 The Samurai Once the great shores, were guarded and protected, by warriors fierce and strong. Adorned, these were by mantles of fine armor, with helmets set upon their brow. No more are these shores watched, by those unflagging sentinels. Their bodies have returned to the sand, from whence they came. Their people now fall to shadow, with no guardian remaining. But in the moonlight, upon the sand, comes to shore, the embodiment of their spirit. Waves billow, and on them ride, those helmets that once adorned the brow, of warriors of old. The souls are in these creatures, of those fierce and strong. And in each drop of blood they give, their people go on. Artwork by: Matt Ciacmucci, grade 12, Haverford High School, Haverford, PA Poem by: Ashley Tomasello, Grade 9, S. Hunterdon Reg. Sch., Lambertville, NJ
