Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is pleased to announce another round of reporting grants for journalists who want to produce in-depth stories on previously untold threats to biodiversity or new approaches to conservation.
With support from the Arcadia Fund, EJN is offering grants typically ranging from $1,000 to $2,000, with some flexibility for deep, investigative stories using innovative approaches to storytelling. The deadline for applications is 17 February 2017.
EJN is making the grants available through its Biodiversity Media Initiative, which also offers organisational grants and fellowships to biodiversity-related conferences.
The winners of last year’s reporting grants produced stories on topics including threats to river dolphins in India and the enigmatic axolotl in Mexico, to privately-funded conservation in Nigeria and threats to the Peruvian Amazon.
