ICARUS – A guide dog for humanity

How do diseases spread through animal migration?

How can we predict earthquakes through animal behaviour?

Can animals tell us more about climate change?

Wild animals have always been an indicator for environmental processes. The Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Radolfzell, Germany has established a new, global system which allows us to use information provided by animals for humanity: The “Animals’ Internet” serves us as a guide dog and helps us understand and protect life on earth.

About the speaker:
Prof. Martin Wikelski is Director of the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Radolfzell, Germany and does research on animal migration and Immune-Ecology.
