United Nations Foundation 2022 Thomas Lovejoy Memorial Press Fellowship

The Press Fellowship will bring a group of journalists to the heart of the Amazon to explore issues of biodiversity, deforestation, and sustainable development.

The trip will take place the week of October 17, 2022, against the backdrop of a national election to determine Brazil’s next president, just three weeks ahead of COP27, and two months before the Biodiversity COP in December.

The Fellowship is named after the late Dr. Thomas Lovejoy, the renowned ecologist and Senior Fellow for the UN Foundation who first popularized the term “biodiversity.” Ten journalists will travel to Manaus, Brazil before spending three days at the remote research station in the Amazon, known as Camp 41, where they will have the opportunity to take guided tours of the world’s largest rainforest.
