The March issue of Up Here is on newsstands now and out to subscribers. Inside we profile several of the North's smallest communities, look at one Yukon town's battle with the United States' government to protect the Porcupine caribou herd and showcase the winners of our annual Up Here photo contest—including our sleepy little cover model up above. Photographer Natalie Gillis snapped the bear cub catching a snooze on the Eclipse Sound between Baffin and Bylot islands.
There are also some big changes happening in-office with the Up Here team. Managing editor Herb Mathisen and editor Elaine Anselmi have moved on and we've been joined here in Yellowknife by me—Jacob Boon—another east-coast transplant moving North for work. I'm formerly city editor with The Coast alt-weekly in Halifax (which is actually a regional municipality, not a city), and I'll be writing these newsletters every week. Stay tuned because there are even more exciting changes we'll be announcing next month.
As always, thanks for reading,
