Call for Reporting Grant Applications - Wildlife Trafficking and Conservation Solutions in East Africa.
InfoNile invites journalists in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan to submit proposals for in-depth investigative multimedia journalism stories on wildlife trafficking and conservation. These stories are part of a series of stories and will feed into a final data journalism project including interactive maps and stories.
While national parks and private conservancies in East Africa have served to protect large numbers of threatened species, the population of these species continues to decrease precipitously.
Wildlife habitat decline, wildlife trafficking and poaching are major threats to the region’s wildlife and to local people who depend on wildlife and natural ecosystems for their livelihoods.

This project is supported with funding from Internews' Earth Journalism Network.
