Migrations: Wildlife in Motion
Tell A Friend
The perfect integration of art and science, world-acclaimed wildlife photographer Art Wolfe documents the migratory patterns of wildlife in his stunning book Migrations: Wildlife in Motion. Inspired by the spatial designs of Dutch artist M. C. Escher, Wolfe traveled the globe in search of similar patterns in nature. The result is breathtaking. Capturing the instincts that cue snow geese to head south, monarch butterflies to bedeck a forest of trees, or ladybugs to gather into a living masse, Migrations: Wildlife in Motion relates a message of celebration and conservation.
The Smithsonian’s National Zoo is transforming its historic 1928 Bird House and surrounding plateau into an educational celebration of birds and bird migration. Experience Migration will be a first-of-its-kind zoo attraction that immerses visitors in birds’ miraculous annual journeys. Naturalistic exhibits will represent habitats of critical importance for migratory birds.

Our National Museum of Natural History’s Department of Vertebrate Zoology studies birds and other migratory animals.
