The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is hosting a week-long workshop designed to give reporters access to experts in conservation, wildlife crime and investigative reporting and equip them will skills and knowledge to better report on wildlife and conservation issues.
The workshop will be held on the north coast of Kenya around Nyali from November 18-22 (please note these dates may change slightly).
This workshop is part of EJN’s East Africa Wildlife Journalism project supported through a joint grant from the US Department of Interior and the US Agency for International Development.
EJN will bear the travel, accommodation and meal costs of selected participants.
Selected participants will also attend a field trip that will enable them to build stories around the issues discussed during the workshop sessions by witnessing their effects firsthand.

The workshop is open to journalists from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda.
