New reporting opportunity – Global Environmental Impacts of U.S. Policy

The mainstream media is widely reporting the most obvious planet-wide impacts of the U.S. government’s recent drastic shift away from policies protecting the environment, in favor of extraction, development and fossil fuels. But there are other policy initiatives in the pipeline, from both the Trump administration and Congress, which will likely have major international repercussions for the global environment.

Over the coming months, Mongabay will utilize its international team of contributors and its reputation for insightful reporting on global environmental issues to investigate and analyze international ecosystem impacts resulting from shifting U.S. policies.

Mongabay is looking for untold stories of repercussions that new U.S. policies will have on the ground outside the United States, in other nations or regions — impacts on foreign ecosystems, habitats, forests, endangered species and indigenous peoples around the globe.
