Jumping in to Help Save Alberta’s Northern Leopard Frogs
It’s not easy to spot Northern Leopard Frogs in Western Canada anymore. The species, named after a leopard because of the dark spots across its body, has been designated as threatened in Alberta since 1997. It is estimated that Northern Leopard Frog populations in the province have fallen by 60 to 80 per cent over the last 30 years.

Life with SARA
Chances are, you’ve never seen a nooksack dace. This small grey-green fish — no longer than a pencil when fully grown and not much heftier — lives mainly in three creeks in the Nooksack River Basin in British Columbia’s lower Fraser Valley. It was once abundant, moving into freshwater rivers and streams throughout the region following the retreat of the last ice age some 12,000 years ago. But no more. Today it is on the brink of extinction, a victim of habitat loss due to human development.

Looking Bleak: The Future of Canada’s Forests
By Megan Findlay
The woods are lovely this time of year: the crunching of leaves underfoot, the myriad of bright colours, the crisp cool air. Could you imagine being robbed of autumn hikes? If climate change continues at its current rate, you may just want to retire your hiking boots, because the forests of tomorrow will look very different from the forests of today.

Making Healthy Choices — Going Organic
According to the Audubon, 136 million pounds (61,689 metric tons) of pesticides and chemical fertilizers get dumped into our yards annually. That is seven times the amount our farming community uses! And yet, without considering the side effects, we then let not only our pets but also our children play in this chemtrail environment.
