Great Migrations

If you are tuning in tonight to watch The Great Migrations series, National Geographics’ largest programming event, you might want to watch the “Making National Geographic’s Great Migrations” on NatGeo News which discusses the five years and hundreds of people involved in its production or check out the educators’s resources. National Geographic also offers a demo of their Great Migrations Game to try out. The series itself is possible due to one of the first remote animal tracking technologies created by Rory P. Wilson, a biologist at Swansea University and chief scientific advisor on the film, while working on his dissertation on penguins in South Africa.
