Regional reporting on pangolin trafficking wins Online Journalism Award

The Pangolin Reports, a news initiative by the Environmental Reporting Collective to investigate the illegal wildlife trade of pangolins across Asia, Africa, and Europe, won the 2020 Online Journalism Awards' (OJAs) Excellence in Collaboration and Partnerships.

Rappler was among newsrooms across Asia and Africa that collaborated in 2019 to investigate the illegal pangolin trade. The collaboration resulted in The Pangolin Reports' global report, Trafficked to Extinction, as well as local reports done by more than 40 journalists.

The Online News Association made the announcement on Saturday morning, October 17, Manila time.

Rappler's Keith Anthony Fabro wrote a two-part series on poaching in Palawan. It looked into the role of local officials in saving the Philippine pangolin, and how both national and local governments have not been able to integrate wildlife conservation into their development plans.

The OJAs' Excellence in Collaboration and Partnerships "honors newsrooms and companies who have formed partnerships or collaborations to cover a topic or story with a digital focus."

Launched in 2000, the OJAs recognize major media, international, and independent sites as well as individuals "producing innovative work in digital storytelling."

Before winning an OJA, The Pangolin Reports also bagged two Society of Publishers in Asia awards in August. – Rappler.com
