In March 2010, RTE screened a fabulous documentary series, produced by Crossing the Line Films, which featured Ireland’s most heroic wildlife travelers and the incredible journeys they carry out every single year. From the 20,000km flown annually by the Manx Shearwaters to the transatlantic voyages of our eels and salmon, ‘Wild Journeys’ followed these voyagers to the ends of the Earth, showing the extraordinary challenges they meet and the magnificent landscapes they visit en-route.
A coloured poster, which illustrates the migratory pattern of the wildlife featured in the series, was produced in association with Notice Nature. Click here to see the poster. Some fun worksheets accompanying the series can be downloaded by clicking here.
