The Next Great Migration: The Beauty And Terror Of Life On The Move



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Sonia Shah about the next great migration.

It is no coincidence that during a time of changing climates, wealth inequality, and a global pandemic, that large masses of humans would leave their homes to escape danger and death looking for a better life.

Indeed, it is only natural to migrate—as non-human species do, who do not have to contend with artificial borders, xenophobic leaders, and racist scapegoating.

Throughout history animals, plants, and humans have migrated to avoid danger to their species and telling that story in a new book is acclaimed science journalist Sonia Shah.

Sonia Shah, science journalist and the author of PANDEMIC: Tracking Contagion from Cholera to Ebola and Beyond. Her latest book is The Next Great Migration: The Beauty and Terror of Life on the Move.
