Don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with you. Humans have wondered where animals go for thousands of years and now we finally have a conclusive answer in the form of a new book, Where Animals Go.

Thanks to satellite tracking, drones and cameras, James Cheshire and Oliver Umberti are able to provide an answer.

The book is basically a series of colour maps blended with stunning infographics. Animal migrations are presented in an easy-to-understand manner. Each behavioural pattern is discussed at great length, including how baboons make decisions and why the humpback whale visits undersea mountains.
