The Australian Christmas Island beganannual migration of 120 million red crabs that move from the jungle towards the ocean for reproduction. Snapshots of the "crab invasion", made by photographer Christy Faulkner, The Daily Mail.
Mass migration usually begins in October,However, this year, due to the delay of the rainy season, it started a little later. Employees of the island's national parks are working to close some roads on the island, as crabs can provoke traffic accidents.
Special migration routes have been added to the routes of normal migration, tunnels and crossings, which are designed to help crabs reach the target with minimal losses.
Christie Faulkner settled on the island eight years ago, but the sight of the migration of crabs, the number of which reaches 120 million, still surprises her.
