The HCA: Hermit Crab Association was founded on March 21, 2001 by Christa Wilkin and Jad Johnson as an online community of land hermit crab enthusiasts from all over the world.
We are dedicated to informing the public about the proper care of land hermit crabs. Specifically we are working to dispel the current common view that land hermit crabs are 'throw away pets.' We hope to increase our knowledge of caring for land hermit crabs and pass this knowledge on to others. Our board of directors maintains the site while providing information and policies to our members. To become a member today, register with us and download your own customizable business cards. You are expected to conduct yourself in a polite manner when presenting yourself as a representative of the HCA.
