Bergen, Norway, 20 November 2011 – The world is covered by billions of invisible migratory pathways.

These world wildlife hubs are vital for the animals to refuel and reproduce – one missing link can jeopardize an entire population.

Across the planet millions of animals travel with the seasons from one location to the next. Not unlike modern transport systems with interconnected airports, road and railway grids, migratory species depend on a network of habitats and corridors across the planet. Losing a single migration corridor may jeopardize entire populations.
On land, in the water and in the air – the UNEP rapid response assessment illustrates why ecological networks require immediate international attention and where on earth intervention is urgently needed for the frequent travellers of the animal world.
