Migratory ways

Like my daily migration from home to work and back, here are a couple of articles on the topic plus a link to last night’s Nature show on PBS.

One of the biggest stories this past year was talk on a possible road through Serengeti National Park and how it would disrupt the Wildebeest migration. Check out “Road Through Serengeti National Park Will Kill Annual WildebeestMigration: Richard Leakey” by Matthew McDermott at Treehugger.

On a note closer to home (as I mentioned in an earlier post on Loons in Minnesota), we should begin to see the results of this years migrations after winter as discussed about in “Migratory Birds Flying Right Into Oily Morass” by Judy Keen at USA Today.

Last but not least, I was going to mention the show I saw last night on the PBS show Nature but when I went to find the link, I saw a second show I watched a couple of months ago that also speaks to the topic of migration.

The one I watched last night was called “Crash, the Tale of Two Species“which shows the story of  the interconnection of life when two different migrational paths cross paths. The other is “Broken Tail: A Tiger’s Last Journey“, which tells the story of a 100 mile journey taken by this Tiger and asks the question “why”? 

Moving On!
