An infographic in the ACAP Species series has been produced for the globally Vulnerable and Nationally Vulnerable Diomedea epomophora in the three official ACAP languages of English, French and Spanish. The latest infographic has been sponsored by the Norwegian Environment Agency and joins infographics previously produced for 12 albatross species.
The ACAP Species Infographic series has been designed to help inform the general public, including school learners, of the threats faced by albatrosses and petrels and what is being and can be done to combat them. They serve to complement the more detailed and referenced ACAP Species Assessments, the concise and illustrated ACAP Species Summaries and the ACAP Photo Essay series. English and Portuguese* language versions of infographics are available to download here. French and Spanish versions can be found in their respective language menus for the website under Infographies sur les espèces and Infographía sobres las especies.
All the 13 infographics produced to date may be freely downloaded at a high resolution to allow for printing professionally in two poster sizes (approximately A2 and A3). Please note they are only being made available for personal use or when engaging in activities that will aid in drawing attention to the conservation crisis faced by the world’s albatrosses and petrels – when ACAP will be pleased to receive a mention. They should not be used for personal gain.
The ACAP Species Infographics have all been created by Thai illustrator Namasri ‘Namo’ Niumim from Bangkok. Namo is a graduate of the School of Architecture and Design, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design. Two more ACAP Infographics are currently in production, for the Grey Petrel Procellaria cinerea and the White-chinned Petrel P. aequinoctialis. The former has been sponsored by the Australian Antarctic Program.
With thanks to ‘Pep’ Arcos, Barry Baker, Karine Delord, Johannes Fischer, Anne Martinussen and Chris Robertson for their help.
*Being produced for those ACAP-listed species that regularly visit waters off Brazil. To date, these are the Tristan Albatross D. dabbenena and the Black-browed Albatross Thalassarche melanophris.
