Membership Meeting – Thursday, October 19, 2017

Ecological Atlas of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas – presented by Audubon Alaska

at the BP Energy Center – 7:00 PM

Join us Thursday, October 19, for Anchorage Audubon’s October general membership meeting when Audubon Alaska will present their new Ecological Atlas of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas.

Who was Vitus Bering, what kind of name is Chukchi, and is Beaufort pronounced “buuefort”, “bowefort”, or “bowfort”? If you want the answers to these important questions (and many others), then you’ll want to attend our October, 2017 Anchorage Audubon Society membership meeting.

 

“Audubon Alaska’s Ecological Atlas of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas takes you on a scientific journey through natural history and ecological relationships in the Arctic marine environment.

This comprehensive, trans-boundary atlas contains over 100 maps of Arctic marine mammals, seabirds, sea ice, subsistence, and more. The Atlas is organized into six sections that build, layer by layer, the ecological foundation of the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas.”

Anchorage Audubon has recently looked through this book, and it is beautifully put together, full of literally awesome and colorful maps, and is very informative and educational.

Important Bird Areas in the regions bordering these productive and important Arctic Seas are covered.

Even though we seem to have an omni-present Red-throated Loon in Anchorage every summer, this book illustrates and educates on the Red-throated Loons bordering these important and productive Arctic Seas.

If ever there was a book that should be considered a perfect coffee table or even elevated to the status of a bathroom book (admit it, everyone has a treasured bathroom book), this is the one!
