PROJECTS

Silent Forest

A platform for visualizing data on the degradation of the Amazon rainforest, based on a paper published in Nature. This was a partnership with the Sustainable Amazon Network (RAS) that relied on support from InfoAmazonia.Org.

Atlantic Forest Infographics

the traditional non-stop deforestation of the Brazilian biome and the most recent data depicted in infographics and unpublished maps developed in partnership with Café Art for the NGO SOS Mata Atlântica.

Journalistic articles

Authored by scientists and edited by journalists – scientific articles and expert texts converted into concise, easy-to-read news articles. The content is offered to the press free of charge.

Videos for social networks

viral videos based on essential scientific work, like this one on the state of the igarapés in the Amazon in partnership with RAS.

Sustainable Amazon Policy Briefs

A series of five summaries for decision makers and opinion leaders based on RAS’s scientific work: Igarapés, Fires, Forests, Legislation and Landscapes.

Sustainable Amazon Symposium

We worked on the development of materials for consultation and dissemination, and also offered support in the organization of this RAS event, which brought together decision makers and opinion leaders in Belém.

Costing Nature

By applying a deforestation model based on historical rates, scientists came to the conclusion that life in the Amazon will not survive more than two centuries. An InfoAmazonia project with support from the Ambiental team.

Extreme Climate

Climate change manifests in the Amazon in extremes that are difficult to predict, challenging the traditional knowledge of fishing communities. A multimedia report in partnership with InfoAmazonia, funded by EJN.

WE HAVE PARTNERED WITH

SO, THEY SAY

"A new frontier in scientific journalism. Entrepreneurship and a passion for transcending the barriers of scientific communication are the hallmarks of the initiative. Ambiental Media has been an indispensable partner, promoting vital connections between our work and some of the best journalists and communicators in Brazil."

Toby Gardner
Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI) and member of RAS Steering Committee

"At a time when climate denialism, scientific illiteracy and "alternative facts" seem to be rampant, the existence of organizations that devote all their efforts to disseminating scientific information is more crucial than ever. Ambiental Media is one of them. It's scientific journalism at its best."

Alberto Cairo
Director of the Visualization Program at the Center for Computational Sciences of the University of Miami

"A great initiative to advance environmental and scientific journalism in Brazil."

Emilio M. Bruna
Professor, Department of Tropical Conservation, University of Florida

"I have always wanted to share the results of our research as widely as possible and thus have a better chance of contributing to a better society. I believe that the involvement of society in the various stages of science is fundamental. Through Ambiental, we are pleased to pursue these goals."

Joice Ferreira
Researcher at Embrapa Amazônia Oriental

"Ambiental Media offers a valuable service with the potential to benefit not only scientists – whose work deserves to reach a growing audience – but also news consumers. Often alienated by technical barriers, these readers can now discover a new and attractive path to the wonderful world of scientific discovery."

Jeremy Caplan
Director of Education at the Tow-Knight Center for Journalism Entrepreneur, City University of New York (Cuny)

"Working with Ambiental has been rewarding. They were instrumental in developing an effective engagement strategy for the Sustainable Amazon Network, helping us to spread the discoveries to millions more than we would have otherwise. "
