Mongabay in the news, September 2019

Our reporting often appears beyond the bounds of the main website and multiple language subdomains when other outlets republish or otherwise use our work. Our team is sometimes interviewed about their work, too, as when our Karla Mendes appeared on syndicated radio program Sea Change Radio to discuss her reporting on the Amazon fires. Founder/CEO Rhett Butler also penned an op-ed for Singapore’s major daily The Straits Times about Indonesia’s own forest crisis. Many of Mongabay’s appearances elsewhere in the media happen when other outlets republish reports via our Creative Commons license, as when major Spanish daily El Pais reprinted our Portuguese coverage of the correlation between deforestation and fires there.

Mongabay’s reporting often appears beyond the bounds of our main website and its multiple language subdomains when other outlets republish or otherwise use our articles. In the past month many outlets used our work including Asia Times, which republished our feature on how shrimp farms threaten Myanmar’s remaining mangroves, and Pacific Standard, which posted a Mongabay feature about companies getting fined for Amazon deforestation. Some other top impressions for Mongabay in the media last month appeared in the journal Science and also on Hawaii Public Radio, which used our reporting in a piece about the death of a rare rhino, which Smithsonian also did. Elsewhere, our reporter Karla Mendes was the subject of a radio interview on WORT in Madison, WI about her reporting from Brazil about the struggle for indigenous land rights under the new president.

Mongabay founder interviewed about his history with Madagascar

Mongabay founder Rhett A. Butler was recently interviewed by Rainbow Tours for its blog. In the interview, conducted by Rainbow Tours’ Madagascar & Alternative Africa product manager and author/conservation writer Derek Schuurman, Rhett talked about his inspiration for starting Mongabay, including the role his visits to Madagascar played in the site’s origin as well as WildMadagascar.org, Mongabay’s sister site. The strange and unique flora and fauna of Madagascar made it an obsession from the moment I learned about the island. My first visit to Madagascar as a teen was pretty disastrous, but nonetheless I saw so many interesting things that I had to return a few years later. Travel to Madagascar invariably includes highs and lows from amazing wildlife to destroyed landscapes, but I recommend it as a destination for anyone passionate about wildlife who has the ability to weather a bit of adventure. He also revealed that Mongabay is hiring its first journalist dedicated to covering conservation and issues related to it in Madagascar. Malavika Vyawahare — an award-winning environmental journalist who has reported for Hindustan Times, The New York Times, The Guardian, Al Jazeera and Scientific American — joined the team in April 2019. Check out the interview at An Interview with Mongabay CEO Rhett...
