What's it about?

This site focuses on the seasonal migration of geese and other animals, and specifically, the role NOAA plays in understanding when, where, and why they migrate, and keeping them safe while they do.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Fun and educational, this site is a great place for kids to understand how inter-related the world is. Games and activities round out the offerings.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about how climate change and global warming have made it more difficult for animals to migrate, and the growing number of species that are at risk for becoming extinct as a result. What can we do to make a difference, and prevent this from happening? How can individuals, families, communities, and governments get involved?
