Best of the Web

CableFAX said about the website: "Our judges raved about the site's logical design and its emphasis on 12 "hero" animals from the linear series. It's yet another fine example of Nat-Geo's skill in promoting linear through the Web and then, uh... migrating those eyeballs to the TV screen."

Great Migrations is a world-wide programming event. The seven-hour miniseries, which aired in the fall of 2010, was presented in high-definition and included four core hours focused on animal migrations across the globe. Great Migrations, the most monumental pursuit in the National Geographic Society's 120-year history, featured advanced film technology to capture spectacular footage and rare behaviors of the migrating animals.

The Great Migrations website is an international campaign which NeoPangea designed to promote National Geographic channel's Great Migrations series. The craftsmanship reflects the grandeur of the mini-series which rivals all other nature documentaries in its scope and style. A 3D Migration Globe allows users to explore the migratory patterns of twelve different animals from a global perspective while brandishing the details of each creature's travels. 3D Animal Interactives create an enhanced learning experience about each migrating species that is so intense you'll practically smell the pelts. Virtually rotate and roll each critter in three dimensional space to lean about how its anatomy aides in migration. Get to know the wings of a Flying Fox or the multiple mini-mouths of a Golden Jellyfish. Find out if an Elephant Seal has big ears or if a Wildebeest has crazy armpit hair. NeoPangea challenges you to prevent the extinction of your curiosity.
