The Biodiversity Media Grants are aimed at supporting projects that:

  • Generate comprehensive stories that widen and deepen the coverage of biodiversity and conservation issues.
  • Develop training programs on biodiversity and conservation for journalists and media organizations to improve their capacity to report on these topics.
  • Develop and reinforce journalist networks devoted to these issues, empowering them to capitalize on strategic opportunities, strengthen the abilities of their members, and respond to the needs of communities.


  • EJN is expecting to provide grants of 10,000-12,000 EUR to 3-4 organizations. Generally, proposals with smaller budgets will have a higher chance of being selected. However, larger grant amounts may be considered for projects that employ innovative approaches and require more resources and time.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The focus of this opportunity is to build reporting capacity in countries with limited resources, specifically targeting low- or middle-income countries as classified by the World Bank.
  • They have a specific focus on supporting projects in regions with high biodiversity, such as the Amazon, Central Africa, and Southeast Asia. They are seeking applications from countries where they have not previously provided funding, with a particular emphasis on West Africa, Central America, and Eastern Europe. Some countries of interest include the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Kyrgyzstan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
  • This opportunity is open to journalist networks, media organizations, civil society organizations, and academic institutions. While applications from NGOs or environmental groups looking to build journalist capacity will be considered, preference will be given to applications from professional journalists, media organizations, journalism schools, and similar entities.
  • Applicants must indicate their affiliation with existing media organizations or provide detailed plans on how the project will contribute to the creation of a new network or organization.
  • Applications that are based on advocacy or political campaigning will not be reviewed.
  • Existing or former grantees of the organization are eligible to apply, but preference will be given to those who have not been supported before. The performance of previous grantees will be taken into consideration during the selection process.
  • Only applications in English will be accepted for this funding opportunity.

  • The excellence of the proposal and its alignment with the goals and priorities of the grant program.
