New Reporting Opportunities: Asia-Focus

New Reporting Opportunities: Asia-Focus

Mongabay is excited to announce four new reporting opportunities within our Mongabay Reporting Network program. Articles produced under these four opportunities will be focused on Asia: Asian rhinos, Indonesian Coal, Mekong dams and Infrastructure expansion in Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea. Asian Rhinos Asian rhinoceroses are amongst the world’s rarest and most threatened animals. Mongabay is seeking story pitches for a multi-year project on Asian rhinoceroses, including the Sumatran, Javan, and Indian one-horned rhino. Proposals for both news updates and in-depth features will be considered. Read the details here. Mekong dams Stretching more than 4,000 kilometers from the Tibetan Plateau to the South China Sea, the Mekong is one of the world’s great river systems. Mongabay welcomes story pitches on the environmental and social impacts of dams along the Mekong and neighboring river systems. Priority countries for coverage are Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Stories from Myanmar and southern China will also be considered. Read the details here. Indonesian Coal Coal burning is a major climate threat. Indonesia’s push to build scores of coal-fired power plants could lock in coal demand for decades, while driving carbon emissions, worsening air and water pollution, and resulting in further environmental degradation including forest destruction. Expanded coal demand will also exacerbate social conflict, land-grabbing, corruption, and further concentration of wealth and power in the hands of oligarchs. Yet this coal development can still be stopped. Highlighting the dangers and risks of coal expansion among the public, policymakers, and international financiers could spur a shift toward greener and more equitable forms of energy. Read the detail here. Infrastructure expansion in Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea all have economic development plans that call for increased investment in infrastructure: new roads and railroads through wilderness areas; massive land reclamation projects; hydroelectric dams; coal and natural gas-fired power plants, and more. Mongabay is seeking pitches for stories on the potential social and environmental impacts of proposed infrastructure projects in these countries. Proposals for both news bulletins and in-depth investigations are welcome. Read the details...

New Reporting Opportunity – Great Ape Crisis

Mongabay is excited to announce our new Great Ape Crisis Mongabay Reporting Network (MRN), which aims to inform the world about escalating threats to the world’s great apes. Great apes are balanced on the knife-edge of extinction. Mountain gorillas, western and eastern lowland gorillas, and Sumatran and Bornean orangutans are all now listed as Critically Endangered; chimpanzees and bonobos are Endangered. The article series, to be published in the last quarter of 2016 and first quarter of 2017, will bring public attention to the issues causing this situation. Articles produced under this MRN will focus on the following topics: wildlife trade, wildlife trade solutions, survival plans, industrial agriculture, logging, energy development or human-great ape conflicts. However, Mongabay is open to hearing your great ape pitch, even if it falls outside the specific topics listed here. Click here to read more about this opportunity and how to...

Now you can directly support reporting projects

A new and exciting initiative is underway at Mongabay! This week, Mongabay will launch a fund-raising and community building initiative that seeks to leverage the people power and financial resources of the organization’s millions of readers and supporters. The appropriately entitled “Impact Fund” initiative will unify a grassroots network of environmental activists, scientists, educators, and other Mongabay supporters in order to maximize the organization’s positive impact on conservation. “Right now, our organization is supported almost entirely by small to medium-size foundational grants.” said Dave Martin, who works in development for Mongabay. “These grants are usually program specific, last one to three years, and are not guaranteed to be renewed in the future. We often find ourselves on pins and needles during the grant cycle, waiting for funding to arrive. We hope the Impact Fund will alleviate some of these jitters by providing us with predictable, sustained income from a broad base of supporters”. At its core, the Impact Fund is a membership-based community where individuals offer monthly contributions. Going into the future, however, members will enjoy a more robust experience, including access to high-resolution nature photos, behind-the-scenes content, and opportunities to engage directly with Mongabay staff. As the initiative grows more popular, we expect to develop features exclusive to Impact Fund members. Founder and Executive Director, Rhett Butler sees this initiative as a natural progression in the organization’s growth. “We are excited to see where this goes. The community that uses Mongabay is very unique and we hope this initiative spurs further collaboration across the field of conservation.” To kick things off, an anonymous Mongabay supporter has put up $25,000 in matching funds for all September donations, agreeing to match monthly donations offered during the month of September 12 to 1! For all questions regarding the Impact Fund, please email Dave Martin via...

Mongabay wins support from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation

We’re very to excited to announce that Mongabay has received a grant from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. The $150,000 grant, announced yesterday, will enable us to strengthen our core operations, reach more readers, and expand key reporting initiatives, including our environmentalists under threat and conservation effectiveness reporting projects. “It’s a huge honor to receive a grant from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which is committing millions to protecting biodiversity, wildlands, oceans, and the rights of indigenous people,” said Mongabay Founder and CEO Rhett A. Butler. “I see this as recognition of the work the Mongabay team is doing in bringing critical environmental issues to the attention of the public, civil society, and policymakers.” “We’re very grateful to the DiCaprio Foundation for its support.” The grant was given under the foundation’s Innovative Solutions Portfolio. Yesterday the foundation announced a total of $15.6 million in grants across its program areas. Direct financial support from the foundation now amounts to $59 million since 1998. “Today we are greatly increasing our level of vital grantmaking and strategic partnerships to help solve some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges,” said Leonardo DiCaprio, Founder and Chairman of LDF, in a statement. The grant comes as Mongabay is rapidly scaling up its operations, including the recent launch of a Spanish-language news service run by a team in Latin America. “This grant will give us more flexibility to dive into key but lesser-known conservation issues that may otherwise go unreported,” said Dave Martin, Mongabay’s development officer. “This is also a huge win for the environmental community – hundreds of thousands of people and organizations depend on our news and analysis to inform their...

Brazilian journalism team reporting on dams in Amazon wins award

Mongabay congratulates Agência Pública for being the recent recipient of the Petrobrás Award. The journalism team was awarded for their special investigative report, funded by Mongabay’s Special Reporting Initiatives Program, on threats currently facing the Tapajós River valley and the communities that call the valley their home. The awards ceremony was held last week, during which Agência Pública was awarded the Petrobrás Journalism Award in the National category – Environmental Responsibility – News Portal on the Internet. “The Petrobrás is a very reputable award in Brazil and we are very glad to have won two years in a row,” said Tina Leme Scott, Project Manager for Agência Pública. “Actually this year we won twice – another story about people who still have no electricity in Brazil was also awarded!” Agência Pública’s reporting on the Tapajós River valley also placed second for the fourth edition Republic Award of National Association of Prosecutors (Associação Nacional dos Procuradores da República [ANPR]) under the Web Journalism Category. The first place award went to another Pública article about a resort in the indigenous land of Ceara. “For us it is a great recognition from a very important institution, the Association of Prosecutors, who increasingly are taking our stories and moving forward with investigations that are sparked by their revelations,” said Scott. The fourth edition Republic Award received 81 entries in 11 categories, nine members aimed at initiatives of the Federal Public Ministry, one for journalists and one for social responsibility projects. The winners were invited to participate in a dinner offered by the ANPR to celebrate the victory and the partnership between the entities engaged in the promotion of justice and the defense of democratic rule of law. The president of the ANPR, José Robalinho Cavalcanti, was quoted on the Association of Prosecutors’s website saying, “We selected exceptional works that deserve not only applause of the prosecution, but the entire Brazilian society,” he said. For him, the initiatives are worthy of recognition and should be replicated across the country. Pública, an award-winning women-led organization, was founded in March 2011 by a team of women reporters in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It is the first center for investigative journalism in Brazil and produces high quality, non-partisan investigative journalism in order to strengthen Brazilian democracy. Pública’s mission is to impact the Brazilian media by promoting its core values: journalism without ideological interference, focus on the public interest, defense of transparency and ethics by the public administration, promotion of the democratic debate about relevant issues, and the relentless defense of human rights.

Mongabay is hiring for 3 positions in Latin America

Founded in 1999, Mongabay.com is one of the top sources of environmental news, analysis, information, and inspiration on the Internet. The site as of February 2016 draws more than two million visitors per month, making it among the most visited eco-focused destinations on the Internet. On May 21, 2012 We officially launched mongabay.co.id, an Indonesian-language environmental news service that includes a core team in Java and freelance correspondents across the archipelago. The system enables mongabay.co.id to report at local, regional, and national levels within Indonesian on issues that affect forests and forest-dependent communities. After its first three-and-a-half years, mongabay.co.id published more than 4,500 posts and drew more than 5 million visitors, making it to the most popular Indonesian-language environmental news site. Mongabay-Indonesia has gotten the attention of top officials—including President Jokowi, who has referenced the site—and business leaders, while catalyzing broader awareness of civil society groups and the importance of stewarding natural resources. We are now creating a similar service (Mongabay-Latam) in Spanish-speaking Latin America. We are recruiting a team to develop and expand Mongabay-Latam, including a program manager oversee the initiative, a staff writer to produce original daily content, and a contributing editor to manage a network of contributors across Latin America. We’re primarily considering candidates in Colombia and Peru for these positions, although we may consider exceptional applicants from other Latin American countries if the fit is right. Here are the job descriptions: Peru/Colombia: Program manager for Mongabay-Latam (English | Español) Peru/Colombia: Contributing editor for Mongabay-Latam (English | Español) Peru/Colombia: Full-time writer for Mongabay-Latam (English | Español) If you’re passionate about conservation issues and interested in working with us, we encourage you to apply for the positions you’re qualified for. A little more about Mongabay-Latam Mongabay-Latam will publish original reporting on environmental news. While all stories would be produced in Spanish, some would be translated or summarized in English for the main Mongabay.com web site, helping reach an international audience. Mongabay-Latam would also seek syndication agreements with several media outlets inside and outside the region. Under these agreements, Mongabay-Latam articles would be freely available for republishing on these outlets’ web sites. With its established reputation and strong following, Mongabay-Latam could be an ideal platform to inform civil society, policymakers, and the general public on land-use change, biodiversity, natural ecosystems, forest-related issues, and local livelihoods, among other topics.
