Important Bird Areas


  • Ecological Atlas of Southeast Alaska(September 2016) In the Ecological Atlas, we have built upon the information in our previous Tongass publications. We improved datasets such as forest vegetation, anadromous fish distribution, salt marsh estuaries, and Important Bird Areas. We included new information, such as projected climate change, mammal and bird viewing hotspots, metals mining, and infrastructure. The publication includes photos and charts that accompany the maps and writing, and ends with a conservation summary and set of management recommendations based on the information included.  (This link is to an online publication; visit our Tongass page for high resolution files to download)
