Mongabay in the news, Spring 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 team is interviewed by other media outlets, too: editor Karla Mendes was interviewed by WORT-FM in Wisconsin about how COVID-19 is affecting indigenous communities in Brazil, while staff writer Liz Kimbrough appeared on a program syndicated to 70+ U.S. radio stations about air quality during the pandemic, and gorilla conservation.

Some noteworthy citations include a New York Times story about the Amazon, a Newsweek article about the plight of captive elephants in Thailand during the pandemic, a Foreign Policy feature about coronavirus in Nicaragua, this Smithsonian story about an amazing frog, a letter to the top journal Science that used two Mongabay features to back its argument for protecting Indigenous peoples in Brazil from COVID-19, and a New Yorker feature that also referred to Mongabay’s coverage of the coronavirus in Brazil.

Media outlets that chose to republish our features in full via the Creative Commons during this time ranged from Quartz, Rappler, In These Times, and Environews Nigeria to The Florida Bulldog. We encourage fellow media outlets to republish our features in their own publications, too, one can review our policy and guidelines here.
