“Everything in nature is interdependent and connected and the changes we make in one place can cause a chain reaction in other places, even at the opposite end of the world. The challenge we face now is how to live our lives without destroying the places that are crucial to the shorebirds’ ancient, wondrous Circle of Life.” Jeannie Baker
Award winning children’s author and artist Jeannie Baker has published her long anticipated new book, Circle. This beautifully illustrated story follows the migration of the Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica baueri) from Australia through Southeast Asia to its Alaskan breeding grounds and then back to Australia.
The Bar-tailed Godwit’s 11,000 kilometre journey from their breeding grounds in Alaska across the Pacific Ocean to Australia or New Zealand is the longest unbroken migration of any animal. The birds follow invisible pathways in the sky, which they have followed for thousands of years.
