Journalists, media organizations and journalism schools can apply for grants for training and capacity building.
The Earth Journalism Network (EJN), with support from Arcadia, organizes the Biodiversity Media Grant Opportunity to increase the capacity of media to cover critical issues of conservation and biodiversity.
The total grant fund is US$48,000, which will be tentatively shared among three to five projects.
Projects should build the capacity of journalism networks and media organizations to report on biodiversity and conservation issues; carry out biodiversity and/or conservation training activities for journalists; build internal capacity; or organize local networks around these issues.
EJN is especially interested in projects that focus on conservation in high-biodiversity regions of the world, such as the Amazon, Central Africa and Southeast Asia.
The deadline is Oct. 15.
