Migration   

1     In the animal kingdom, many animals make seasonal trips for many reasons. Some do to avoid harsh weather and have an abundant food supply all year round. Some do to mate and give birth to their young. Despite what motivates these animals to pack up and go, we have a name for this interesting animal behavior. We call it "migration."
 
2     You may know that Atlantic salmon swim upstream to their birthplace once a year so they can lay eggs. You may know that puffins return to the land for just a couple of months a year so they can breed. You may know that reindeer move constantly so they can find enough vegetation to fill their stomachs. You may also know that leatherback sea turtles go ashore every year to dig holes on sandy beaches and lay eggs there.
