Audubon Alaska Releases the Ecological Atlas of Southeast Alaska

Friday, September 23, 2016

Where can you find the highest number of bird species in Southeast Alaska? Where does the habitat of brown and black bears overlap? Audubon Alaska’s newest publication, the Ecological Atlas of Southeast Alaska, answers these questions and more through maps and written descriptions. Audubon Alaska researched data and compiled information from researchers and agencies to create a thorough look at the landscape of Southeast, from human uses such as airports and ferry routes to wildlife uses such as bird and salmon habitat.

A free digital version of the atlas and downloadable high-resolution files are available on the Audubon Alaska website.

Audubon will hold release events in Sitka on October 12 at 6:00 pm at the Baranof Island Brewery and in Juneau on October 13 at 7:00 pm at the Juneau Audubon monthly meeting. Print copies are available for $125 per atlas, which directly covers printing and mailing costs. A limited number of complimentary copies are available upon request. Contact Heidi at (907) 276-7034 or hdecoeur@audubon.org.
