Homing experiments have demonstrated the ability of animals to orient themselves geographically. Such experiments involve removing animals from a specific point.

Finding the way to wintering sites thousands of miles away is easy for animals -- they just put the coordinates into their GPS systems and follow the turn-by-turn directions. Actually, the methods animals use to navigate their migration routes are even more amazing than an animal that could program a GPS : Ed Grabianowski.

Animal Migration is an open access journal that publishes cutting-edge research on the biology of migratory species.

We strive to present a forum where all aspects of migratory biology can be discussed, from genetics and physiology to ecosystem-level interactions between migrants and their environment and everything in between.

The habits of migrating whales, birds, and insects all yield key data for the science of animal navigation. But as commentator Barbara J. King explains, Holly the housecat's mile journey back.

However, migration – the long distance movement on a seasonal basis – is actually displayed by all major animal groups. From the Monarch butterfly, that travels thousands of kilometres every autumn to hibernate in Mexico and Southern California; to the Humpback whale, that migrates between cooler and warmer waters to feed and : James Venner.

Actually, the whole subject of animal navigation is fascinating evidence that it is not only human beings who are ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’. Many creatures perform annual return migrations involving many thousands of kilometres—organisms as different as the green sea turtle, the salmon, and the garden warbler bird.

There are few non-human animal mental feats harder for us to comprehend than navigation. And so, there are few better ways to contemplate how little we know of how other species experience the world than through reading about navigational feats of pigeons, dung beetles and salmon/5.
