Mongabay in the news, February 2020

Our reporting appears regularly beyond the bounds of the main website and multiple language subdomains when other outlets republish or otherwise use our work. Our team and contributing writers are also interviewed about their work, as when correspondent Justin Catanoso was interviewed for “Press Play,” a show on public radio station KCRW in California about his coverage for Mongabay about Microsoft’s announcement that it plans to go carbon negative. Many of Mongabay’s appearances elsewhere in the media happen when other outlets republish reports via our Creative Commons license, such as Birdwatching Daily which republished our story about the recovery of the Madagascar pochard, or when other outlets rely on our reporting to inform their own, like the Weather Channel which quoted from our reporting for its own report about Peru’s new Dorsal de Nasca marine protected area . We encourage fellow media outlets to republish our features in their own publications: review our republishing policy and guidelines here. Here’s a selection of instances where our reporting was republished, cited, discussed, or reported on by various media outlets during February 2020: Birdwatching Daily, Bogota Post, Burma News International, Christian Science Monitor, El Desconcierto, Diario Cordoba, EJU-TV, Eco-Business, EcoWatch, FirstPost, Happy Magazine, Inhabitat, KCRW, Manila Bulletin, MSN, Mizzima News, Mother Nature Network, New York Times, The News Minute, El Periodico, Press Play, Quartz, RPP, Science, Scroll, South China Morning Post, Tehran Times, UNILAD, VOA News, Voice of Monterey Bay, Washington Post, Weather Channel, The Wire, Yahoo News, and Yale Climate Connections.

Mongabay in the news, January 2020

While the presence of Mongabay’s work in the global news media last month was dominated by our Indonesia editor’s controversial arrest and subsequent deportation from that country (hundreds of stories appeared in outlets ranging from the New York Times to BBC, Reuters, Associated Press, and the South China Morning Post), our environmental and conservation-related reporting was referenced and republished widely, too, as usual, such as in Quartz which published our discussion of Indian cinema’s general lack of climate change themes. We encourage fellow media outlets to republish our features in their own publications: review our republishing policy and guidelines here. Here’s a selection of instances where our reporting was republished, cited, discussed, or reported on by various media outlets during January 2020: The Age, Agence France Presse, AllAfrica.com, Asia Pacific Report, Asia Sentinel, Associated Press, The Australian, BBC, Boston Globe, CNBC, Chicago Sun Times, The Coloradoan, Council on Foreign Relations, Dagens Nyheter, Democracy Now, Daily Star, Eco-business, Ecowatch, Eurasia Review, Il Fatto Quotidiano, FirstPost, Fox News, Green Biz, Grist, The Hill, Huffington Post-India, The Independent, Inter Press Service, International News Lens, Jakarta Post, Los Angeles Times, Mother Jones, Nature, New York Times, News 24, Quartz, Reuters, Sacramento Bee, San Francisco Chronicle, Scroll, Sky News, Smithsonian Magazine, South China Morning Post, The Star, Straits Times, Sydney Morning Herald, TD News, Time, USA Today, VOA News, Vice News, Wall Street Journal, The Wire, Yahoo Finance, and Yahoo News.

Mongabay and The Gecko Project win award for Indonesia coverage

Mongabay and its “Indonesia for Sale” series partner The Gecko Project were honored with a Fetisov Journalism Award last month for an investigative report produced in collaboration with Indonesia’s Tempo magazine and Malaysiakini. “The secret deal to destroy paradise” is the third installment of the in-depth series on the opaque deals underpinning Indonesia’s deforestation and land rights crisis. The report was the second prize winner in the “Excellence in Environmental Journalism” category and details a plan to create the world’s largest oil palm plantation on the island of New Guinea. A previous report in the series, “Ghosts in the Machine,” was also recognized by a prize jury: the Society of Environmental Journalists noted it in 2019 for outstanding in-depth reporting, as part of its annual awards for environmental journalism. The Gecko Project is a UK-based investigative journalism initiative, and their director, Tom Johnson, accepted the award at the January 22 ceremony in Lucerne, Switzerland, on behalf of the winners. The event was attended by experts in the field of journalism, finalists of the competition, prominent public figures, and the founders of the award, the Fetisov family.

Mongabay in the News, December 2019

Our reporting appears regularly beyond the bounds of the main website and multiple language subdomains when other outlets republish or otherwise use our work. Our team members are sometimes interviewed about their work, too, as when correspondent Justin Catanoso was interviewed on “The State of Things” show on public radio station WUNC in North Carolina about his coverage for Mongabay about the latest climate treaty conference, and our editor Erik Hoffner was interviewed by Public News Service for a report that appeared on 47 radio stations in the U.S. about his recent article on the U.S. government’s new financial support for agroforestry initiatives in Appalachia. Many of Mongabay’s appearances elsewhere in the media happen when other outlets republish reports via our Creative Commons license, or when other outlets rely on our reporting to inform their own, such as Asia Sentinel which republished our story on floating solar farms on the Mekong and Vice which relied on our reporting for its own report about the extent of Indonesia’s recent forest fires. We encourage fellow media outlets to republish our features in their own publications: review our republishing policy and guidelines here. Here’s a selection of instances where our reporting was republished, cited, discussed, or reported on by various media outlets during December 2019: Asia Pacific Report, Asia Sentinel, Blue Ridge Public News, The Bogota Post, CNBC-TV, China Dialogue, Civil Beat, The Conversation, Corvallis Gazette-Times, El Desconcierto, Down to Earth magazine, Earth Island Journal, EcoBusiness, EconoTimes, EcoWatch, Eurasia Review, FirstPost, The Hill, Huffington Post/India, India Times, International News Lens, International Policy Digest, The News Minute, Newsroom, Nova-PBS, Outlook India, Philippine Daily Observer, Philippine Inquirer, Phnom Penh Post, Public News Service, Quartz, Quartz-India, Rappler, Scoop News, Scroll, Smithsonian magazine, The State of Things, Straits Times, Truthdig, Undark magazine, Undercurrent News, VOA Indonesia, Vice, WUNC-FM, The Wire, Yahoo News, and Yale Environment 360.

Mongabay in the News, Autumn 2019

Mongabay’s reporting appears regularly beyond the bounds of the main website and multiple language subdomains when other outlets republish or otherwise use our work. Our team members are sometimes interviewed about their work, too, as when staff writer John Cannon appeared on Living on Earth, the American public radio program heard on 250 member stations, to discuss his reporting on the construction of the controversial Pan Borneo Highway in Malaysia. Contributing editor Jeremy Hance was also interviewed, on WCBN-Ann Arbor in his case, about his award-winning reporting on numerous wildlife topics for Mongabay. Many of Mongabay’s appearances elsewhere in the media happen when other outlets republish reports via our Creative Commons license, or when other outlets rely on our reporting to inform their own, such as The Guardian which used a Mongabay article in crafting one of its own about the Amazon forest being near a point of no return in terms of deforestation. We encourage fellow media outlets to republish our features in their own publications: review our republishing policy and guidelines here. Here’s a selection of instances where our reporting was republished, cited, discussed, or reported on by various media outlets during October and November 2019: AllAfrica.com, America Magazine, Asia Pacific Report, Asia Sentinel, BBN Times, Bangkok Post, Birdwatching Daily, Business Insider, CNBC-TV, China Dialogue, Common Dreams, El Colombiano, Dagens Nyheter, Daily FT, Ecobusiness, Ecowatch, Eurasia Review, FirstPost, Fishnews.com, Guardian, The Hindu, Hot in Here Podcast, Huffington Post, IPP Media, India Times, Indigenous News, Inquirer, International Business Times, International News Lens, Living on Earth, Nature, Nature World News, The New Leam, Newsroom, Online Khabar, Open Democracy, PhysOrg, Public Radio International, Pulitzer Center, Quartz, Radio Free Asia, Rakyat Post, Reader’s Digest, Retraction Watch, Scroll, Smithsonian Magazine, The Star, The Swaddle, Undark Magazine, VOA Cambodia, WCBN-Ann Arbor, WELT, The Wire, The Week, Yahoo Finance, and Yahoo News.
