A biologist in the Maldives claims to have discovered the longest migration of any insect: the dragonfly.
Biologist Charles Anderson has recorded dragonflies travelling between India and Africa.
Most of the dragonflies recorded by the biologists are Globe skimmers (Pantala flavescens).
the full report was published in the Journal of Tropical Ecology.
It is pleasing to note that the environment on Earth still supports such adventures, what with vested interests blocking cleaner sources of energy, and the perpetuation of the illusion that consumerism ever made anyone happy.
