Christmas Island Crabs

Christmas Island is one of the territories administered by Australia. The remote island is located in the Indian Ocean, 380 kilometres south of Java and 1,565 kilometres to the Australian mainland. The island has a population of about 2,000.

Christmas Island is well known for its red crabs. The annual red crab mass migration to the sea to spawn is one of the wonders of the natural world. This migration takes place each year after the start of the wet season synchronized with the cycle of the moon.
