Migratory birds use magnetic clues to find their way south in fall and north in spring.

Salamanders and frogs use the magnetic field for orientation when they have to find the direction of the nearest shore quickly.

Elasmobranch fish have a special sensory organ to perceive electric fields with high accuracy and can use this organ also to detect magnetic fields.
