There are two main reasons for this migration; Firstly, these waters contain Narwhals favorite! Arctic Char.

This migration mainly happens around Nagarhole river in Kabini, India and Minneriya National Park in Sri Lanka. The dry seasons in India between early March till end of June facilitate this movement. Elephants come in search of water and the greens available abundantly around the Kabini backwaters region. These giants migrate from different jungles of Bandipur, Madumalai, Wayanad and Satyamangalam in the South of India. The heard has all age groups and it is magical to witness how protective the herd can be about their calves.
Around 10 million fruit bats also known as Megabats weighing about 6 gms migrate to the Kasanka National Park, Northern Zambia. This is the largest mammal migration one can witness. As the temperature drops in their habitat and reduces the amount of insects available , these bats shift to Zambia in search of food and to hibernate in favourable conditions. This phenomenon can be seen for about 90 days from October to December. The fascinating event is a great way to understand and study the behavior of bats and also amazing to watch.
Emperor Penguin migration
The largest group in the penguin community, Emperor Penguins are the biggest most heavily built species. The female penguins lay eggs during winters and pass them to the males to incubate these eggs over the winters while they return to the ocean to feed. The new fathers survive the cold and hatch these eggs. Wanting to reunite with their partners after the home-coming, both females and males give outcalls. They are loud, shrill and too many in numbers. They can be heard from miles away. This site is so heartwarming as the mothers meet their chicks for the first time and over the next two months, the parents take turns feeding them. They also migrate to reach high breeding grounds during March. This can be sighted from November to the end of March at the Weddell Sea Coast in the Antarctic Peninsula.
