What is Animal Migration?


A V-shaped flock of geese flying overhead on a fall or winter’s day is a familiar sight to most of us. But, as this vibrant volume shows, there are numerous other animals that also migrate for various lengths of time and for various reasons. Colorful photographs allow readers to follow birds, zebras, whales, turtles, and more as they migrate to find food, shelter, breeding grounds, or more suitable climates. Readers will learn how air, land, and water migration differ, what landmarks and senses animals rely on to get them from place to place, and why migration is essential for survival.
