Migration is one of the most engaging phenomena of the animal world and one that is
epitomized by birds. Understanding and tracking animal movements are crucial
components for conserving habitats that are essential to species survival. Looking
beyond conservation, understanding animal movement is also essential for
determining and predicting the spread of invasive species, pandemic disease, and even
how a flock of birds might intersect with a passenger jet—something that costs the
airline industry more than $13 billion a year. Moreover it is essential for informing
and minimizing impacts of the energy development sector. Unfortunately, our
knowledge about why, how, when and where most of earth’s bird species migrate
during their lifecycle is rudimentary, at best. Join Pete Marra as he takes us on a
journey to discover the unknown migrations of the birds of the Western Hemisphere.
