Once a year, the coasts of Christmas Island turn bright crimson. The red crab migration sweeps across the island in one of nature’s most spectacular mysteries. Their habitat is an Australian territory in the Indian Ocean with 63% of its land preserved as a national park. Around its namesake holiday, a crimson carpet covers the ground as more than one hundred million red crabs march from inland forests to the shores. They risk their lives on this twelve-hour journey to spawn in the sea. Watch as they migrate en masse, spawn in triumph, and return as baby crabs to carry on life for the stunning species.
