About Sue Palminteri WildTech Reporting Fellowship

This Fellowship is an excellent opportunity for journalists to apply their skills to write stories about conservation technology-related research at Mongabay. 

Over the course of the part-time, six-month program, the WildTech Reporting Fellow will work directly with Mongabay editors to develop their writing skills and publish a series of their stories on Mongabay’s independent news platform, which has over four million global readers every month.

What will you do?

The WildTech Reporting Fellow will be writing roughly six news stories and six interviews on a variety of conservation technology topics over a course of a six-month commitment. Topics will be assigned by one of our editors. The Mongabay fellow will work closely with Mongabay journalists, receiving guidance and feedback on their stories before publication.

The one-on-one training and mentorship from editors provides the fellow with a deeper understanding of journalistic programs and processes at Mongabay and helps build the fellow’s writing portfolio.
