Awesome Polar Icons

As early-career polar researchers, we value good science communication. We strive to make beautiful presentations, posters, and infographics; however we often struggle to find freely-available and accurate depictions of polar flora and fauna, scientific equipment, and other items related to our work. So, we have created a database of free design elements!

We would like to thank our icon creators
Xavier Dallaire, Xavier Giroux-Bougard, Rebecca Hennigs, Alexandra Langwieder, and Gwyneth MacMillan.
