Support WBUR’s Environmental Reporting Initiative



WBUR is seeking support to launch a significant expansion of its environmental reporting.

Changes to our climate and the natural world pose serious threats to our communities, our health, and our planet—yet there is a lack of environmental coverage in local and national news outlets. The average radio news outlet dedicates just 1% of its coverage to the environment. NPR is considered a leader in environmental reporting among radio news outlets, yet the environment constitutes just 2.15% of its coverage.

With this major challenge in mind, WBUR will build a multimedia, multiplatform reporting team to provide serious, in-depth, compelling environmental coverage.

The best way to support WBUR is through unrestricted funding, however, if you would like to support this specific initiative, you may click here to make a gift online.
