Research shows getting tough on methane could reduce warming by 0.3 C
If governments, including Canada’s, are serious about preventing global temperatures from rising more than 1.5...
I encountered a lone Canadian lynx in mid-March as much of the world was becoming gripped by the coronavirus pandemic.
Seeing this creature lope silently down a deserted forest road, I thought to myself: a whole world of people scared of each other and yet life in the wild carries on.
With so much turmoil and uncertainty surrounding the effects the virus was having on our planet, it was hard to not be pessimistic.
Until I snapped the photo.
Oblivious to it all, this single lynx gave me a sense that life will carry on. I could instinctively tell that the only concern it had in this moment was the moment itself.
Likely searching for its next meal, nothing else mattered. Simple as that.
Life in the wild. Carrying on.

And since you’re here, we have a favour to ask. Our independent, ad-free journalism is made possible because the people who value our work also support it (did we mention our stories are free for all to read, not just those who can afford to pay?).
As a non-profit, reader-funded news organization, our goal isn’t to sell advertising or to please corporate bigwigs — it’s to bring evidence-based news and analysis to the surface for all Canadians. And at a time when most news organizations have been laying off reporters, we’ve hired five journalists over the past year.
Not only are we filling a void in environment coverage, but we’re also telling stories differently — by centring Indigenous voices, by building community and by doing it all as a people-powered, non-profit outlet supported by more than 3,500 members.
The truth is we wouldn’t be here without you. Every single one of you who reads and shares our articles is a crucial part of building a new model for Canadian journalism that puts people before profit.
We know that these days the world’s problems can feel a *touch* overwhelming. It’s easy to feel like what we do doesn’t make any difference, but becoming a member of The Narwhal is one small way you truly can make a difference.
If you believe news organizations should report to their readers, not advertisers or shareholders, please become a monthly member of The Narwhal today for any amount you can afford.
