In addition to the newsletter, the ANG runs an e-mail animal-forum to provide an international link between research scientists and other interested people over the whole range of research disciplines that relate to animal navigation, including orientation, migration, neurobiology, animal behaviour, sensory physiology and ecology. It was formed in 2000 and has 469 members, mostly Professors and PhD experimental biologists, drawn from 39 countries around the world. 126 members of the animal-forum have agreed to cooperate on animal-navigation research projects. To join the animal-forum send an e-mail to RIN-ANIMAL-NAV-FORUM@peach.ease.lsoft.com with the text:
