Deep interactive learning on western hemisphere bird migration.
Click link above and explore how birds migrate through interactive animated maps
“Billions of Birds Migrate” is a data-driven feature showing the journey of several species of migratory birds across the western hemisphere, through text, audio, photography, and animated maps.
The project began as part of National Geographic Magazine’s involvement with the Year of the Bird campaign, an effort to bring more attention to the role of birds in their habitats and why birds matter. This project was meant to be the digital manifestation of a topic also covered by a supplemental poster map created by Lauren E. James and Fernando Baptista.
