Animal Navigation Group



The Animal Navigation Group (ANG) provides a focal point for members interested in animal migration, orientation and navigation.

The Group acts as a forum to disseminate news on animal navigation, orientation and migration through its newsletter and conferences. The conferences run every three years and the next of these animal navigation conferences will be in April 2019 (see below for details).

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.
