From whales to manatees, pronghorn antelopes to monarch butterflies, tag along with North American animals as they make the trip of a lifetime.
Follow the paths of nine very different types of animals, exploring how and why they take their road trips and the challenges they face along the way. Snakes slither along Southern Illinois’s Snake Road. Gray whales swim down the California coast to Baja in Mexico, and sandhill cranes wing their way through the midwest. Migrating polar bears cross through the center of Churchill, Manitoba, and monarch butterflies may even cross through your backyard. Along the way, these animals on-the-go mate, molt, and munch in unique ways.
