PROGRAMS

Mongabay.org aims to raise awareness about social and environmental issues relating to forests and other ecosystems. These are the program areas:

DAILY ENVIRONMENTAL NEWS

Proving comprehensive and in-depth daily reporting on environmental topics since 1999.

SPECIAL REPORTING INITIATIVES

Our Special Reporting Initiatives (SRI) program enables professional journalists to do series of in-depth articles—published under an open Creative Commons license that allows for re-publishing elsewhere—on particular environmental issues.

GLOBAL FOREST REPORTING NETWORK

Together with World Resources Institute, we are launching the Global Forest Reporting Network to cover forest-related issues around the world with data-driven stories. We are currently accepting applications from experienced journalists who wish to make a difference.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

We offer six month unpaid internships, providing experience writing environmental news stories for our affiliated news site – Mongabay.com.

FOREIGN-LANGUAGE NEWS

Priority languages include Spanish, Indonesian and Portuguese.

EDUCATION

Educational materials, standards-based modules, and activities for K-8 children developed by school teachers and curriculum experts.

TROPICAL CONSERVATION SCIENCE (TCS)

An open-access academic journal that aims to provide opportunities for scientists in developing countries to publish their research. Unusually for an open-access journal, TCS does not charge any fees to readers or authors.
