Join John Gerwin, the Museum’s Research Curator of Ornithology, as he talks animal migration and how technology is unlocking some of its mysteries.

Autumn brings cooler temperatures and a variety of animals on the move. Butterflies, bats and birds are some of the many animals that take a short, medium or long-range trip. John will discuss various ways animals migrate, and some of the technologies used to study the phenomenon. He will showcase data from projects with which he is involved.
