  • Each year millions of red crabs migrate along the coast of Christmas Island, an Australian territory in the Indian Ocean
  • The staff at the Christmas Island National Park set up miles of road barriers so the crabs can pass safely over specially constructed bridges
  • Each female crab can spawn up to 100 000 eggs into the oceans – these baby crabs are expected to return to shore a month later and go back into the forest.
