"Embedded in the wildlife are their migrations, more complex and variable, more deeply inserted into their lives, than most of us ever realized."
—from the foreword by Annie Proulx
But, happily, you don't have to wait any longer. Wild Migrations
is now available for pre-order. Read on for details about how to get your copies, what's in the atlas, what it took to make it, and where you can find previews and excerpts.
What's in Wild Migrations?
We were fortunate that novelist Annie Proulx, a long-time observer of Wyoming's landscapes, agreed to write the foreword to the book. She invites atlas readers to see Wyoming through the eyes of ungulates, and we're humbled by her glowing assessment of Wild Migrations
In total, the atlas covers more than 70 topics including:
- Global migration ecology
- Wyoming's ungulates
- Archaeology and history of Wyoming migrations
- Current status of migratory game in Wyoming
- Challenges to migration, including energy development and highways
- Corridor conservation
- Wildlife crossing structures
The atlas is being published by Oregon State University Press
. It is richly-illustrated with maps, photos, and art. This beautiful, large-format book represents five years of work by our team. It will ship in October 2018.
