Dear supporters,

Fabulous news! State of the Animal is now 75 per cent funded. Take a look at this letter on humpback whales to see why this matters so much.

$3,800 dollars are still needed to achieve our goal in the next 11 days. Your pledge will ensure that bears, whales, and salmon do not stay out of sight and out of mind of policymakers.

Here's John Vaillant, author of the Golden Spruce, on why this reporting is crucial:
