THE WORLD AS ENDANGERED SPECIES
THE WORLD AS ENDANGERED SPECIES
Species extinction takes place worldwide in varied levels of concentration.
The grids on this map show the density -or concentration- of endangered species in a given location. A tighter grid denotes an area of more endangered species.
To make this map, we applied the Red List Index from the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species.
If we had lived in a world without red-listed species, this map would be a uniform grid with size relative to longitude and latitude.
The map is printed using museum-quality paper weighting 200g/m2 (200 gsm / 80 lb), using thick and long-lasting premium matte paper. The paper is FSC certified, which means that it is derived from a sustainably managed forest, and we use environmentally friendly ink. Prints are to a large extent locally printed, which saves transport emissions.
Please note that the print does not come with a frame or a hanger, this needs to be ordered separately.
A beautiful wooden frames with the following specifications:
- Lightweight 1-2 cm (0.4-0.8") thick frame
- Shatterproof, transparent plexiglass.
- Includes hanging kit, to hang in both portrait and landscape orientations.
- For indoor use
Please note that the print are sold separately from the frame.
A wooden magnetic poster hanger. Each hanger includes four wooden sticks, two that clamp the top of your print and two that clamp the bottom and a premium leather cord that matches the hanger colour. Strong magnets securely grip your artwork, while easily you to change the art whenever is needed.
- Magnetic design holds your print without damaging it.
- Premium leather cord matches the hanger colour.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For prints that are 100x70 cm, then hanger which is 71 cm only fit to the Arctic Bathymetry map, since this is the only map with a vertical orientation.
Please note that the prints are sold separately from the hanger.
We offer free worldwide shipping. It will usually take 5-7 days for you to receive your products from us. After ordering, you will receive an order confirmation. Once the poster is printed and shipped a notification of the track id of your shipment will be emailed to you.
The map is shipped in sturdy packaging protecting the poster
