Internews’ EJN is offering story grants to journalists to produce stories on transnational conservation crimes and the threats faced by Indigenous peoples and local communities in Amazon Region.

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.

This opportunity 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).
