Internews’ EJN is offering organizational grants to media outlets, NGOs, academic institutions, and other interested groups to strengthen environmental media coverage in the Western Amazon.

EJN and the Internews Americas team are seeking to strengthen the capacity of journalists and media organizations to produce high-quality, factual, and engaging public information on the impacts of conservation crimes, their association with climate change, and viable solutions to mitigate and respond to these impacts.

The project aims to facilitate safe and effective collaboration among journalists, independent media, and communicators to support the production of content that amplifies indigenous peoples’ and local communities’ issues. The goal is also to promote transparency and accountability to combat transnational conservation crimes in the Amazon basin.

Organizations awarded media grants will receive guidance, feedback, and editorial support from Internews’ Earth Journalism Network as they pursue and develop their stories, webinars, training workshops, and other knowledge products.

This opportunity to strengthen environmental media coverage in the Western Amazon is offered as part of the Together for Conservation project, which aims to strengthen the capacities of civil society actors and their regional networks to conserve biodiversity and prevent environmental crimes in the Amazon. It is led by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
