There are numerous documentaries highlighting different animal migrations around the world and I personally am enthralled each and every time I watch one. These migratory movements are generally to ensure the creature’s survival and so take on a very dramatic story line.
Whale sharks off Mexico’s Caribbean coast follow the climatic patterns that sustain their supply of food and water. Others travel vast distances each year to instinctually return to their ancestral breeding or birthing grounds. These creatures migrate in great numbers not only because of their communal instincts, but because it provides safety from predators.
I have selected a few of the my favorite migrations to inspire you to see something truly special that nature has to offer.
Of course, this is just a small selection of animal migrations that happen every year. Let us know in the comments section which ones you’d like us to add to this list.
