Crab Con is the only international hermit crab conference for the "just curious" to the "my hermit crabs let me live in their house" crowd!

This year's event is all-virtual and we are offering a $5 ticket for Girl Scouts! "Scout's Honor" Crab Con Registration Link. To purchase your exclusive "Girl Scouts Only" ticket, click the special "Scout's Honor" link to register with RingCentral, the hosting platform for our virtual conference, granting access to the full three days of Crab Con!

Hurry! There are a limited number of specially priced tickets for Girl Scouts. Please only share this link with Girl Scouts! Others are welcome to attend at regular prices. Proceeds go to Hermit House.

It's a great way to learn about the environment (shells on the beach are hermit crab homes!), how hermit crabs are just like us (they live in a colony and have feelings!), what it takes to properly care for a hermit crab (they can live up to 40 years!), and much more.

Our speakers come from all over the US and the world -- from as far away as Indonesia, Australia, and South Korea. Girl Scouts can watch alone or in groups and can watch as many sessions as they like. We also have a virtual expo filled with vendors who create special items specifically for hermit crabs and those who love them.

*Our conference was created to help spread the knowledge of hermit crab care as well as support Hermit House, 501(c)(3) in its mission to Keep Wild Crabs Wild through education, conservation, and captive breeding.

Can't make the conference? Follow our Hermit House progress on Facebook & join LHCOS (Land Hermit Crab Owners Society) for the latest information on ethical hermit crab husbandry and the compassionate care of these unique and long-lived creatures.
