EJN offers grants to cover marine crisis in Mediterranean Sea




Earth Journalism Network (EJN), With support from the Adessium Foundation,  is offering grants to selected journalists to report on overfishing, illegal fishing and the biodiversity crisis in the Mediterranean region.

This initiative marks the upcoming World Biodiversity Day.

Journalists from countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea can apply for reporting grants.

Interested journalists must submit story proposals focusing on themes such as biodiversity loss in the Mediterranean Sea, endangered marine species, marine protected areas, marine pollution, the deep sea, destructive fishing practices, or other issues affecting the Mediterranean Sea.

EJN says,” Today, with the total population of the Mediterranean countries estimated at around 512 million, and set to grow by another 180 million by 2050, the once abundant Mediterranean sea is at the center of an overfishing crisis”.

Increased fishing capacity has ultimately placed these waters under unsustainable pressure, leading to recent estimates that over 87% of assessed Mediterranean fish stocks are overfished.

The deadline for the application is May 13, 2022. Interested applicants can apply here.
