National Geographic is airing a new seven part series on great migrations around the globe and examining the driving principles that create migrations. No migration is more iconic than the movements of over 1 million wildebeest along with a couple hundred thousand zebra and gazelles throughout the Serengeti ecosystem including Serengeti National Parka and surrounding areas in Tanzania and Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve.
As this spectacle has long been called the Great Migration it of course features in this series as part of the very first segment called Born to Move airing on November 7th on the National Geographic Channel. The wildebeest migration will also feature on November 9th on the Science of Great Migrations Episode. Guide to episodes, photos and video previews can be accessed here
