Mongabay in the news, July 2020

Mongabay’s reporting appears regularly beyond the bounds of the main website and multiple language subdomains when other outlets cite it in part, or republish it whole, via our Creative Commons license. Our editors, sources and writers are also interviewed regularly about their work, such as when the syndicated radio program Sea Change Radio spoke with a subject of a recent report at

Several media outlets chose to republish our features in July, ranging from the top sustainable agriculture site Civil Eats which republished the report about how Wall Street is starting to fund sustainable and climate-positive agroforestry initiatives, to The International News Lens which reposted our coverage of China’s fishing fleet’s abuse of Indonesian workers, and Earth Island Journal which published our op-ed that rebuts the recent media coverage suggesting that coconut products are more damaging to biodiversity than oil palm plantations.

We encourage fellow media outlets to republish our features in their own publications, too, one can review our policy and guidelines here.

Some noteworthy recent Mongabay citations in other parts of the media include in a Vice News report about a newly-discovered species of crustacean that can grow up to a foot long, a story in Smithsonian about how the homes of rich Americans are responsible for nearly 25% more greenhouse gas emissions than those of poorer people, a note in USA Today about our climate change coverage, and a shout-out in the Guardian about our coverage of the cancer-fighting properties of a tropical sponge.
