Playing in the big leagues

Playing in the big leagues r1 ... View archive version We got some excellent news yesterday — The Narwhal has been nominated for four National Magazine Awards!

Judges considered entries from 187 Canadian magazines this year, so we’re tickled pink to be recognized alongside the very best of this country’s magazine journalism.

Launched less than a year ago, The Narwhal is an ad-free, non-profit online magazine focused on telling stories about Canada’s natural world. More than 1,200 readers donated to support The Narwhal’s journalism during our first year, including more than 700 monthly members. Pretty cool, eh?

(If you wanna join the party, become a Narwhal.)

Read on for stories this week on Canada getting something right, caribou lobbying efforts by the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association and a happy (really!) story about scientists giving Fraser River salmon a fresh chance.

B.C.’s natural resource officers unequipped to deal with forestry and wildfire crimes: special investigation

By Larry Pynn

Imagine a complex forestry crime. Say a logging company fails to replant a clearcut or an individual is illegally stealing Douglas Firs from Crown land for lumber. Now imagine the provincial law-enforcement officer assigned to investigate those violations of provincial laws has no training in how to gather evidence.

Or, think about a suspicious wildfire. Nearby there’s a vehicle that may be connected to the blaze but officers in the field are so poorly equipped they can’t even conduct a check on the vehicle’s registration.

This is the state of affairs for natural resource officers in B.C. Read more.

As a mother of three children, I hope one day you work will be discussed in the schools to further raise awareness about our environment and the protection of animals." - a brand new monthly member Thank you so much for becoming a Narwhal!
