Arctic Wings showcases the work of award-winning photographers whose images capture the global bird biodiversity abundantly represented in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge ecosystem. Twenty-five color photographs help tell the remarkable stories of perseverance and daring – and of amazing survival. Subhankar Banerjee, Michio Hoshino, Mark Wilson, Hugh Rose, Arthur Morris, Paul Bannick, and Brad Winn have produced a wide range of compelling images including stunning vistas of diverse Arctic habitats and remarkable close-ups of many bird species: land birds, shorebirds, owls, long-distance flyers, and more.

This exhibit will tour nationally following its debut at the Burke Museum, joining another critical wildlife-themed exhibit, The Last Polar Bear: Facing the Truth of a Warming World, which is also on view at the Burke through the end of 2008.

A related, award-winning book published by The Mountaineers Books – Arctic Wings: Birds of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is available with the exhibit and includes a 60-minute CD of Arctic birdsongs.
