Beating the Heat
When our blood begins to boil under the blazing summer sun, we go to all sorts of lengths to chill out, from taking a dip in a pool to standing in front of the open fridge door.

Canada’s Lost Species
By Leigh Edgar
Extinction isn't exclusive to species on remote tropical islands, or in the lush rainforests of South America. You might be surprised to learn that we’ve lost species in our own country.
