To Ghizlaine, one of the Pablo Neruda students due to visit Kinmen, the animal that is only found in America and Asia is not strange at all, thanks to Reby’s lessons.

Holding a horseshoe crab specimen, 13-year-old Ghizlaine said: “It is from Taiwan and at risk of extinction because people use its blue blood to examine whether medical devices are clean.”
