14,000km Dragonfly Migration Discovered, Longest of Any Insect

July 22nd, 2009

A remarkable dragonfly migration stretching between 14,000 and 18,000 kilometers has been discovered which spans the Indian Ocean.

The migration is by far the longest known insect migration, dwarfing the 7,000km journey of monarch butterflies. Millions of dragonflies make the epic migration every year, which spans from India to the Maldives, the Seychelles, Mozambique, Uganda and back again.
Perhaps the only thing more amazing than the migration is that it has somehow dodged scientific discovery until now. “This just illustrates how little we still know about the natural world,” said Charles Anderson, discoverer of the mass migration.

A total of seven consuls – Belgium, Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain (2) and Ukraine – attended the meeting, whereas the others from Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Montenegro, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia could not attend, mostly for reasons beyond their control.
