Coming and Going

Isabel Minhós Martins · Bernardo P. Carvalho

On earth, we aren’t the only ones who travel long distances. Many birds, fish and mammals migrate hundreds of miles in search of food, of warmer climates or of good places to have their young.

It’s not just the incredible distances these creatures travel, it’s the way they do it that makes us slow down and think...

“Coming and going” follows the extraordinary journey of the artic swallow, the monarch butterfly and the African Gnu. It challenges us to think about the way we live and move around and how this puts the delicate balance of our planet at risk.
