Biodiversity Media Alliance

Linking Journalism with the Web of Life

The Biodiversity Media Alliance aims to boost the quantity and quality of media coverage of biodiversity issues.


IIED, IUCN and Internews created this site to build bridges between journalists and their sources. To learn more about how to use the site, and suggest any ways to improve it, please read and comment on the introductory blog post.


The online toolkit includes 50 topic pages about specific environmental issues including many related to biodiversity. Each includes background information, reporting tips, case studies and examples of good coverage. The toolkit also has pages on key reporting skills, a glossary and links to other resources.
