As part of 2022's Migratory Bird day, Audubon Alaska partnered with artist and filmmaker Max Romey to create two beautiful posters that celebrate some of the many, many species that migrate to Alaska each spring to feed, breed, and nest. Nearly 250 species rely on vital habitat that is currently underthreat from issues such as climate change, industrial-scale logging, oil and gas development.
The first, titled Migratory Birds of Alaska, features eight special migratory birds.
The second, titled Eggs of Alaska's Birds, showcases eggs of both migratory and resident birds, some of which are found on our 2017 WatchList and are especially vulnerable to external threats.
You can pre-order a 11" x 14" limited edition print today by emailing email@example.com and each limited edition is signed by Max and printed on heavyweight watercolor paper for $45 each, with $5 shipping and handling.
Half of all proceeds go to Audubon Alaska to help protect Alaska's birds through our research, policy and advocacy work.
