Spring Forward and Track Migrations for Citizen Science
By Arvind Suresh, Mar 09, 2015
We think migration is one of the most astounding phenomena in the animal world. Creatures large and small travel hundreds, even thousands of miles along the same routes every year, to the amazement of us human observers.
Here are five migration projects that study migratory wildlife and are in need of your observations.
This project monitors the migrations of butterflies, whooping cranes, whales, and more! With interactive maps, teacher resources, and frequent news updates, Journey North is a great project for learners of all ages. Get Started!
Killer Whale Tracker
Want to study whales but don’t live near the ocean? This is the project for you! Listen for whale sounds from your home computer and alert local researchers when you hear a killer whale.
