Applications are now open for the Pulitzer Center’s Amazon Rainforest Journalism Fund to support and build the capacity of local, regional, and international journalists reporting on issues related to tropical rainforests.

One of the three rainforest regions of focus is the Amazon Basin, spanning across the continent of South America. Here, a dedicated group of journalists with extensive experience covering the Amazon envisioned a resource for strengthening and deepening reporting on rainforest issues. Several of them are now advisory committee members for the Amazon Rainforest Journalism Fund, which provides grants and workshops for journalists reporting for a range of media reaching local, national, and regional audiences in the region.
