In Incredible Journey’s, award-winning author David Barrie reveals the cutting-edge science of animal navigation. Breakthroughs are allowing scientists to unravel, learn how animals like butterflies, birds, crustaceans, fish, reptiles, even people naturally find their way.
Weaves interviews with leading experts on animal behaviour with ground-breaking discoveries of Nobel-prize winning neuroscientists. Barrie shines a light on the astounding navigation skills of animals. Dung beetles steer by light of the Milky Way. Ants & bees navigate using patterns of light invisible to humans. Sea turtles, spiny lobsters & moths find their way using Earth’s magnetic field. Salmon return to their birthplace by following their noses. Baleen whales swim thousands of miles while holding a rock-steady course. Birds locate their nests on a tiny island after criss-crossing an entire ocean.
There’s a stunning diversity of animal navigators out there, using senses & skills humans don’t have access to.
