Many in Canada’s eastern provinces are beginning to witness sights and sounds of seasonal movements: monarch butterflies are coming through, geese are leaving, and the numbers of human observers in the parks have started to swell. Of course such witnessing is the result of many factors – including one’s place on the globe, one’s cultural and historical contexts as well as changing climates and migration patterns.

Send us your photographs (or recordings) of your sighted (or heard) ‘migratory natures’. And send along an explanatory description/story as well. All photos and audio files will be posted on the Transnational Ecologies pages and the best ones will be featured on the NiCHE main page. Transnational Ecologies offers 3 book gift certificates of $50 each for the best in the following categories:

  1. most original photograph
  2. most original recording
  3. most beautiful contribution of either sound or image.

Please send audio files in mp3 format: they should be small enough to be sent via email.
