In 2011 near Craters of the Moon in Central Idaho, pronghorn antelope were collared and tracked to determine migration routes. Six different migration paths emerged from this study.
Mountain Visions produced this Google Earth animation showing the movement of the GPS collars recovered from 12 study animals. A timeline window in the upper left corner is synced with the animation to show the movement from winter range to summer range and back again over a 10 and 1/2 month period.
