Rudolph the Stranded Reindeer

Reindeer are rapidly losing their habitat to climate change. Already, overland migration has become difficult, so the Norwegian government hauls caribou to their Arctic Circle foraging grounds by sea, up to 600 at a time.

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
