The World's Biggest Migration

People are immigrants but insects are too, and the incredible annual journey of Monarch butterflies seems insignificant compared to the amazing migration of these little insects!

Every year, millions of dragonflies fly thousands of miles across the ocean from India to Africa. It's the longest migration of any insect. Monarchs fly about half this distance.
