Just wanted to let folks know that we have an updated and corrected version of our grizzly bear range-map. The former version of the map incorrectly showed that grizzly bears no longer live on the southeast Alaskan Islands of Chichagof, Baranof, or Admiralty. In fact, grizzlies are still present — and in extremely high numbers. Still, the major lesson of the map—that grizzly range is drastically reduced—is probably the more important point that the map makes.
A big hat tip is in order to sharp-eyed reader Bill Walker of Billings, Montana who caught the mistake.
