Migrations in Motion-Mapping Animal Movement

We know that climate change is causing big changes all over the globe in our natural environment. But what exactly does that mean for animal migrations?

Using a collection of data from electronic circuit theory, Dan Majka at The Nature Conservancy created a map to show macro-scale animal migrations expected in the Americas as climate change marches forward.

Land and development planners can assist resiliency in animal populations by bringing more connectivity to landscapes through proven methods…think protected habitat corridors and animal crossings over barriers (such as roads).

Check it out the interactive map at The Nature Conservancy’s blog here.
