Mesmerizing video shows the world's largest land mammal migration in stunning detail

A significant aerial survey over South Sudan’s wildlife territory has confirmed the existence and enormity of the world’s largest land mammal migration, involving approximately six million antelope as part of the Great Nile Migration. Conducted by the government of South Sudan in partnership with African Parks, the survey aims to comprehend animal movements across the landscape to preserve the ecosystem for both humans and wildlife.

The vast, large-scale aerial survey stretched over an area of about 122,774 km^{2}, providing unprecedented insights into the complex landscape the antelope navigate and demonstrating the migration’s significance on a global scale.

One important implication of understanding migrations on this scale is the ability to fight poaching, which continues to be a significant threat to certain species. Innovative approaches against poaching have already shown promising results, such as developing radioactive rhino horns to discourage poachers. Gaining insights from the movements of six million animals in this migration may offer valuable information for conservationists striving to protect these migrating herds and contribute to preservation efforts worldwide.
