Mongabay, a non-profit environmental science and conservation news platform based in California in the United States, is inviting applications for its Spring 2024 Internship Programme, an opportunity for emerging journalists to gain firsthand experience in reporting and contribute to impactful, evidence-based environmental journalism.
The organisation says the Programme is a unique, hands-on six-month journey designed to mentor budding journalists and expand their skill set that allows interns to delve deep into critical conservation topics, engage with experienced journalists, and see their work resonate with millions of readers worldwide.
Applicants should be articulate, curious individuals driven by strong values and a passion for environmental journalism. They should possess excellent communication skills, a positive attitude, and a readiness to learn and adapt.
The programme will provide interns with several benefits including a real-world journalism experience; global impact as they would be published on Mongabay.com, a renowned environmental news platform attracting over two million readers monthly; one-on-one coaching from Mongabay editors, enhancing their writing, research and interviewing skills; opportunity to work remotely part-time, allowing for balance with other obligations; and becoming part of a global network of talented writers passionate about conservation and environmental journalism.
Interested journalists are encouraged to take advantage of this chance to kickstart their career in environmental journalism by applying for the Mongabay Internship Programme.
The application deadline is November 28, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. EST.
