Amazing Animal Journeys

Hay Festival 2023, 

Travel through the natural world with amazing animals on epic adventures accompanied by wildlife expert and BBC Radio 4 World on the Move presenter Philippa Forrester.

Discover the wondrous journeys that animals make every day, no matter how big or small, and why they make them. From the record-breaking flight of the Arctic tern that travel from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back every year, to the plankton that rise and descend enormous distances from the ocean depths to the surface from night to day, and the fascinating migration of two grey wolves that take remarkably similar journeys despite being in different parts of the world, you’ll be awed by these surprising stories of migration in the animal kingdom.

An expert on natural history and author of On the Trail of Wolves, The River and The Halcyon River Diaries, Forrester is a presenter on the BBC’s Tomorrow’s World, Robot Wars and CBBC.
