Mongabay offers conservation reporting fellowship

MONGABAY is inviting aspiring environmental journalists from tropical countries to apply for the Y. Eva Tan Conservation Reporting Fellowship.

The programme aims to provide opportunities for journalists to report on critical environmental issues, gaining valuable training, experience, and credibility that will help them advance their careers in journalism and communications.

During the six-month fellowship, fellows will work directly with the fellowship editor to produce six stories.

The organisers say “With the effects of environmental degradation becoming more apparent, high-quality environmental journalism is more important than ever. But like the journalism sector as a whole, environmental reporting has been affected by shifting business models that have reduced the availability of resources for reporting, shrinking press freedoms in many countries and a lack of early-stage career opportunities”.

“These issues are especially acute in places that bear the brunt of climate change, biodiversity loss, the destruction of nature and threats against indigenous peoples and local communities they added”.

The programme will support up to 18 fellows per year – six at Mongabay’s global English bureau, six at its Spanish-language bureau, Mongabay-Latam, and six at its French-language bureau, Mongabay-Africa. Work is remote.



    Eligible applicants must be from a low- to upper-middle-income tropical country, as classified by the World Bank.

    Fellows will receive a US$3,000 stipend.

    The deadline for the submission of application is August 10, 2024.

    Interested applicants can apply here.
