Cancun, México (November 7th, 2010) - Two journalists from Brazil and Bolivia were presented with Conservation International's Biodiversity Reporting Award (BDRA) at an event last evening in recognition of their outstanding work in covering environmental issues and helping to raise awareness about the need to conserve the planet.
"It is an honor to recognize these journalists who have been instrumental in conveying the value of nature and the urgent need to conserve it to a key audience. Their work is particularly important given the wealth of biodiversity and natural ecosystems that their countries harbor. Brazil and Bolivia have some of the most spectacular habitats, plants and animals on Earth. Unvalued, this wealth of biodiversity is highly threatened. Communicating the precious value of nature, as they have done, builds critical public awareness and support for its conservation," said Conservation International's Senior Vice President for Global Initiatives and Climate Change Lead, Dr. Fred Boltz.
With the support of the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and the Federation of Environmental Journalists (IFEJ), this annual award is designed to recognize environmental journalists in countries rich in biodiversity who show great promise in reporting on the critical biodiversity, climate, and development challenges facing the planet today. In 2010, the award was held in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Madagascar and Peru.
Maria Guimarães of Brazil was awarded first prize for her report "Jardineiras Fiéis" ("Loyal Gardeners") about the important role of ants in seed dispersal and reforestation of the Atlantic Forest. Her article was published by FAPESP scientific magazine. Bolivian journalist Miriam Jemio was awarded second prize for her report "El costo de la energía en el río Madera" ("The cost of energy in Madera River"), which shows how the building of mega dams in Bolivia and Brazil will impact the biodiversity and peoples of the Amazon region.
