Mongabay in the news, from Business Insider to Bellingham Herald

The news team had a busy last quarter of a year, with its work cited or republished by media outlets ranging from The Bellingham Herald – which published our collaborative report on Indigenous salmon fishing in Washington – to Business Insider which reported on Mongabay winning the Trace Prize for investigative reporting that exposes financial crimes per our investigation with BBC and The Gecko Project on palm oil profits – among others.

Another award also garnered media attention when Mongabay was announced as the winner of the prestigious international Biophilia Award for communication of environmental news and information, multiple outlets in Europe carried that news.

Mongabay staff also appeared on air during this time, from a segment on Spain’s national radio service about the Biophilia Award featuring Mongabay founder and CEO Rhett Butler, to an appearance for Tim Killeen to discuss the Amazon for a program heard on 80 radio stations, and freelance reporters Didier Makal and Eric Cibamba joined the China-Africa Podcast to share their findings about the effects of a cobalt mine on a local community in the DRC, while Justin Catanoso was interviewed at length on North Carolina Public Radio about his extensive reporting on that state’s biomass energy industry, which is increasingly in crisis.

Mongabay regularly offers its writers and editors for interviews and speaking engagements like these, learn more and see a list of staff available for interviews here.

Numerous media outlets also chose to republish entire Mongabay reports, from Native News Online’s reposting of our collaborative Indigenous salmon fishing feature with McClatchy to Coastal News Today, which  republishedreport about record North Atlantic heat causing phytoplankton declines and shifting fish populations, while Ensia shared with its readers a Mongabay feature about how it’s gotten difficult to obtain and afford insurance for prescribed burns, a major habitat maintenance tool. 

We encourage fellow media outlets to republish our features like this via the Creative Commons, too, one can review the guidelines here.
