SOS has launched a project, entitled Pan Pantala Track to document the intercontinental migration of the Wandering Glider (Pantala flavescens). Dr. Subramanian K.A., Scientist E and Officer in-charge, ZSI, Southern Regional Center, Chennai officially launched the program on 06 October 2020.
The westward migration of millions of Pantala flavescens has fascinated scientists and naturalists for generations. The recent studies have shown that they are migrating to East Africa, taking advantage of the winds of the Intertropical Convergence Zone. With this ambitious project, SOS is trying to study the great Pantala journey with the help of citizen scientists.
