Mongabay in the news, May 2018

Mongabay’s original reporting appears in many places beyond when other outlets republish, quote from, or re-report our findings. One highlight from this past month includes Agence France Presse picking up on our report about rapid deforestation in areas of Peruvian rainforest, which was itself picked up widely by dozens of outlets ranging from Yahoo News UK to The Hindu.

Also in May, Mongabay editor Glenn Scherer was interviewed at length about the deteriorating situation in Venezuela for the syndicated radio show “Radio Ecoshock”, which is heard on 96 radio stations around the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia. Scherer’s reporters have filed a series of stories about threats to the country’s environment from the rampant unemployment and inflation, which is driving its citizens to raid zoos and nature reserves to kill animals for food, and farmers to invade a biological research station to cut the forest to plant crops, putting a species of critically endangered primate at further risk. Listen to him discuss the issues on the show here.
