New Special Reporting Project: Changing Africa

The African continent is undergoing accelerating changes. Urban and rural populations alike are growing rapidly, paced by rising demand for things like food and fuel, electricity and construction materials. The continent has also been a site for the extraction of resources propping up the wealthy North for centuries – palm oil, rubber, slaves; timber, crude oil, coltan – with often devastating impacts on the environment. Looming over all of this are the growing impacts of global warming on harvests, habitat, rivers, coastlines. There are complex choices ahead for people and policymakers in Africa and beyond. The Changing Africa project will look at these in the context of the natural world that everything rests upon, strengthening accurate and useful understandings of wildlife and ecosystems, considering both fruitful and harmful connections between conservation and development, and contributing to better protection of the natural world.

Story Pitches: Two opportunities to write about oceans and fisheries for Mongabay

It’s 2019, and science leaves little doubt that the world’s oceans are changing, fast. Temperatures and high-tide lines are rising. PH and sea ice are declining. Some species are moving into new geographies; others are succumbing to overfishing and other pressures. At the same time, humanity’s interaction with the sea is changing, too. Mongabay is pleased to announce two special reporting initiatives focused on the status of the oceans around the world with a focus on marine conservation and the fishing industry. We welcome story proposals from experienced journalists for articles to be published by December 2019. The Indonesian Fisheries reporting initiative will examine the country’s unrivaled marine biodiversity, the methods of its fishing sector, and communities grappling with the fallout from overfishing by devising new ways to manage and protect marine ecosystems. Please click here to read the full-detail description of the Indonesian Fisheries opportunity. The Sea Change reporting initiative will explore innovative practices, policies, and technologies in marine conservation and the fishing industry. We will cover a wide variety of story lines around the globe, while prioritizing those that focus on efforts to reduce illegal, unregulated and unreported (IUU) fishing in overfished regions, and on developments in China, Indonesia, India, West Africa, and the South Pacific.
