February 2016

Sit down with Canada’s leading polar bear scientist, Ian Stirling, as he dishes on the likely decline of our iconic animal. Then, dive into our “How-to” guide and learn to prepare for some unorthodox situations you might only encounter in the North; Tim Edwards gathers stories of savvy Northerners who got trapped out on the land in “How I got home”; Samia Madwar takes a deeper look at the places many believe to be in the middle of nowhere, and an old Dene caribou hunting technique is brought to light.
