For this Health and Environment Infographic, I chose to look into America’s grey wolf population. Wolves have always been one of my favorite animals.. Their loyalty to their pack mates, their leadership abilities, their adorable resemblance to our domesticated dogs, but still possessing that brutal killer instinct- it has always held a special place in my heart.
I googled a lot when researching this topic. It was much harder that I thought it would be to find current figures on wolf populations. It was even harder to find figures for populations before the species became endangered! All told, this took me the greater part of my morning to find usable information on wolf populations, but I did learn a lot about conservation efforts many different organizations across the world are doing to help these beautiful, once endangered, creatures.
Again, I used Canva.com to make this infographic. I find their product to be intuitive and easy to use. I think it makes making these infographics much easier and allows me to make an interesting piece with an incredible amount of ease.
I designed this piece how I did because of a linked in learning video I watched for this class earlier. In the video, the creator talked about the importance of relationships between the colors. I close a palette in the blue family that used a contingent of secondary colors like greens and purples that complimented each other. Having the grey and whites of the wolf on top of these different shades really helped the animal pop off the page more, I think.
