Tony, I wonder if a human put on a suit of solar energy collectors, if they could take a little flight. Remember those early photos of trying to fly in those crazy huge wings? Maybe they were ahead of their time; they needed an energy source humans couldn't provide.

Tony, as usual, you stimulated my curiosity about orangutans and get ready for an adventure:

Well, I can see the Northern sea route, although I couldn't find a migratory map for norther sea life. This is for humpback whales. 

Migratory route for sea life

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 30, 2013 at 2:06pm

Tony, I have never heard of such creatures. Where do they occur? ...

"most years in the spring, there is a mass stranding that occurs along the West Coast of North America, from British Columbia to California, beginning in the north and moving south over several weeks' time. In some years, so many animals are left at the tide line by receding waves, that the line of dying (and subsequently rotting) animals may be many centimetres deep, along hundreds of kilometres of beaches. Mass strandings have been reported also on the west coast of Ireland."

that is interesting, along the west coast of North America and Ireland. I wonder what migratory route they took to make that leap?
