The Africa-China Reporting Project at Wits Journalism is collaborating with Khetha and VukaNow to host a Wildlife Poaching & Trafficking Journalism Training Workshop in South Africa in July 2019. The workshop will focus on community engagement and conducting impactful reporting. It will provide training on investigative reporting techniques, the trafficking supply chain to and demand in Asia, and innovative methods for community and public engagement.
With their application, journalists should submit proposals for stories that address poaching of rhinos and elephants and the illegal trade of these species, although some exceptions will be made for proposals about the trade of lions and pangolins.
Applications are due May 26. They should include a CV and list of previous reporting experiences, as well as a story proposal with detailed budget.
