Finding your way from A to B is easy with modern GPS systems, but the natural abilities of navigation found in the animal world have piqued the interest of humans for centuries. In this podcast, join authors James Gould and Carol Gould as they discuss the unique directional sensitivities of animals explored in their latest book, "Nature's Compass". They also address the topic of the modern age and climate change's effects on migratory paths - and whether these effects endanger animal species.

The lecture took place at the Museum on May 5, 2013.
