Earth Day 2022

Happy Earth Day everyone! This year we have been so incredibly proud to partner with Earth Day Canada once again to celebrate, and spread the word about this day. If you aren’t already aware, Earth Day Canada’s campaign this year was centred around eco-anxiety – what that feeling is, and […]

Addressing Eco-Anxiety

When thinking about the future, and specifically the future of our planet, do you find yourself often feeling overwhelmed or worried? As environmentalists, I’m sure you have all felt this feeling – the despair that we aren’t, and will never do enough, and the demotivation felt when another environmental disaster […]

Every Day Eco-Heroes – Autumn Peltier

In celebration of this upcoming Earth Day on April 22, we are excited to be creating this series in collaboration with Earth Day Canada. The theme of this year’s celebration was launched yesterday, and is centered around eco-anxiety and turning that feeling into action. As such, we created the “Every […]

The Last of the Atlantic Caribou

The Very Last of the Atlantic Caribou

I found her on my third day, a speck of honey and cream lost in the shimmering savannas atop Mont Albert, Quebec. Through my camera lens I saw a robust and healthy coat, a head without antlers but with the unmistakable contours of the Woodland caribou, her face calm and […]

Mrs. Rogerson of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire had been attempting to create a miniature crested canary and determinedly pursued her goal. At […]

ReViewed

It would be impossible to celebrate the lives of two such magnificent authors without taking a look back at their work. This piece takes a look back at Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam trilogy, one of her poems from Dearly, and Graeme Gibson’s The Bedside Book of Birds – An Avian Miscellany, […]

In My Life

In my second year of university, I lived with my best friend’s family. They have a collection of bird feeders in their backyard, visible from the kitchen window, and some days, when I would wash dishes at the sink, I would watch the birds come and go. The goldfinches, sparrows, […]

Camp Last Hope

It would be difficult to recount all the broken promises which led us here. Two independent forestry reviews, adopted in spirit then ignored in reality; a public push for the purchase of corporate woodlands so they might be protected by government, only to have them opened for logging on new […]

FLIP the Script

This weekend, on Saturday January 22, 2022, you’ll get a chance to flip the script on writing the rules of politics with the help of FLIP 2.0, a virtual national meet-up dedicated to helping you and me to break the political barriers impeding environmental progress. As you and I wrestle […]
