Here's a new poster I made my boyfriend Nick for Christmas. He mentioned that it would be cool to have a poster of Alaska's "lost" (no longer operating) ski areas, so I rolled with that!
Mad props to the Alaska Lost Ski Areas Project for curating all of the data (www.alsap.com). Thanks also to Kevin Everson for finding the lat/long data that I imported into QGIS. At some point I'll make a post about how I made the map in QGIS!

I was wondering: would it be possible to fit every. single. species. of Alaskan mammal on a single 18x24 poster? Answer: yes! It is possible!
Caveats: only one front foot is shown for each species. Also I did not include the dew claws for ungulates. :)
An infographic to answer the question: why should i care about budget cuts to the university of alaska?
