Dear PAOV,

As I look back on a year marked by one climate disaster after another, I take heart in the notes we received from so many of you who made the leap to support our journalism.

“You provide meaningful coverage and perspectives of a world I work, sleep and breathe in.”

“I care about independent journalism that actually treats the climate emergency as the emergency it is.”


There’s been no shortage of doom and gloom in 2021, but I’d like to take this moment to instead reflect on all the incredible things our readers made possible at The Narwhal:
  • We hired seven new full-time staff and offered three photojournalism fellowships to broaden our coverage by, and about, people from communities that have long been underrepresented in Canada’s news ecosystem
  • The Narwhal’s work was read more than 3.5 million times
  • We won three Digital Publishing Awards, four National Magazine Awards, a World Press Freedom award, a Canadian Journalism Foundation award for exemplary journalism and a photojournalism award from the Canadian Association of Journalists
  • Our fight for press freedom drew support from publications and organizations across Canada and the globe, as thousands joined us in calling for a stop to the illegal arrests of journalists
  • The Narwhal’s membership almost doubled over the last year
  • Our expansion into Ontario means more people are reading our work in Canada’s largest province than ever before
Pretty incredible, isn’t it? And at the heart of it all is each and every reader who finds our stories, subscribes to our newsletter, tells their friends about us and makes a donation to support independent, non-profit journalism about Canada’s natural world that you can’t find anywhere else.

We have so many big stories planned for 2022 — but we need your support to make them a reality. Can you make a tax-deductible donation today? Bonus: every dollar you give between now and midnight will be matched by a generous donor. If you give $100, we get $200!
YES, I WANT MY DONATION DOUBLED Our approach to journalism means we don’t run any advertising (we also make our reporting available for free to all). That means we rely on all of our readers to give whatever they can afford to keep The Narwhal’s lights on.

Thank you so much for putting your faith in our team. We can’t wait to grow with you in the new year.

With gratitude,

Emma Gilchrist
Editor-in-chief
