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.


An animated version can be downloaded here; static versions in several sizes can be found here.

A big hat tip is in order to sharp-eyed reader Bill Walker of Billings, Montana who caught the mistake.
