Journey North: A Global Study of Wildlife Migration




Journey North engages students in a global study of wildlife migration and seasonal change. Over 7,500 schools, representing more than 370,000 students, participated in the Spring, 2002 Journey North Program, from all 50 U.S. States and 7 Canadian Provinces. The journeys of a dozen migratory species are tracked each spring. Students share their own field observations with classrooms across the Hemisphere. In addition, students are linked with scientists who provide their expertise directly to the classroom. Several migrations are tracked by satellite telemetry, providing live coverage of individual animals as they migrate. As the spring season sweeps across the Hemisphere, students note changes in daylight, temperatures, and all living things as the food chain comes back to life.
