I hope that this Sunday you didn't lose the premiere of "Great Migrations" on National Geographic Channel, probably the best and biggest project that National Geographic has produced in the last two or three years: a new seven-part television series about the spectacular migrations in the animal world, and with it, a big campaign to promote it, a special website full of content, and a book.
To capture the images and video for the series, they spent two and a half years in the field, traveling 420,000 miles across 20 countries and all seven continents (having themselves in such a way their own migration!).



Move as millions, survive as one. That is the subtitle to the new seven-part television series. Animals great and small are on the move around the world, chasing resources in dangerous journeys that might take mere hours or span generations!
This is a small selection of pictures taken from the book:
