Animal migrations in animated map

Aug 24, 2016

The Migrations in Motion map, by Dan Majka from the The Nature Conservancy, shows modeled animal migrations in North and South America.

Researchers from University of Washington and The Nature Conservancy modeled potential habitat for 2954 species using climate change projections and the climatic needs of each species.

Using flow models from electronic circuit theory, they plotted movement routes for each species, connecting current habitats with their projected locations under climate change.
