Some examples of animal migration include:

  1. Monarch butterflies migrating from North America to Mexico.
  2. Wildebeest migrating across the Serengeti in Africa.

Factors that influence migration patterns include:

  1. Food availability: Animals migrate to areas with abundant food sources.
  2. Breeding and nesting grounds: Animals migrate to specific locations for breeding.
  3. Climate and weather conditions: Animals migrate in response to changing seasons and weather patterns.
  4. Predation risk: Animals may migrate to avoid predators.
  5. Habitat degradation: Human activities can disrupt migration patterns by destroying habitats or blocking migration routes.
