National Geographic Museum Presents Great Migrations: A Photography Exhibition

The National Geographic Museum will present Great Migrations: A Photography Exhibition, open October 15, 2010 – April 11, 2011.

Whether by land, sea, or air, animals are constantly on the move. They run, fly, crawl, or swim to survive. They navigate to breeding grounds, greener pastures, and safe havens. For countless species, migration is a dramatic, dangerous, and crucial endeavor — and it is arguably the greatest spectacle that nature orchestrates. The beauty of these stories is underscored by a new focus into these species’ fragile existence and their life-and-death quest for survival in an ever-changing world.

The exhibition is based on the seven-hour, high-definition National Geographic Channel global television event “Great Migrations,” narrated by Alec Baldwin and premiering this November in 330 million homes, 166 countries and 34 languages.
