The arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea) makes an incredible migration each year. These small birds travel distances of more than 50,000 miles, from pole to pole, crossing through temperate and tropical regions along the way. Carsten Egevang used geo-locator tags to track ten of these terns, and he shares their story with us in this tour.
Narrated by Ari Daniel Shapiro. Produced by Atlantic Public Media (www.atlantic.org) and Eduardo Garcia Milagros.
