Visualizing the future of Conservation

We’ve recently delivered our work for the Audubon Society,the U.S. bird-conservation nonprofit that works toward common flyway conservation goals. The Audubon network divides its conservation efforts along four different north-south networks, to match migratory routes the birds it strives to protect.

We’ve been designing and producing a set of maps for their 2013 annual report.
Their organization is broken into four “flyways,” (Pacific, Central, Mississippi, and Atlantic) and in the report they included a four-page gatefold map of each flyway we designed and produced.

As they write: “Audubon’s partnership with Esri is allowing us to create detailed maps that guide our conservation work. Maps built using scientific data to paint a clear picture of conservation needs and impacts in a particular area are powerful tools when advocating for funding, political action, and partnerships that will help us reach our strategic goals.”

Preview the maps below, check them on flickr, or download the report
