In 2011 near Craters of the Moon in Central Idaho, pronghorn antelope were collared with GPS units and tracked to determine migration routes.
Mountain Visions produced this Google Earth animation which shows the Little Wood River antelope population of 3 study animals migrating from their winter range on the sagebrush steppe of the Snake River Plain to their summer range in the Pioneer Mountains and back to their winter range. A timeline window in the upper left corner is synced with the animation to show the movement over a 10 and 1/2 month period.
