Journalists from Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela, and Peru are in the first cohort of fellows of Rainforest Investigations Network

"The Rainforest Investigations Network (RIN), the Pulitzer Center's new initiative for investigative journalism in tropical rainforest regions, has selected its first cohort of Fellows. Thirteen journalists from 10 countries will spend a year producing investigative stories on key issues facing the future of the Amazon, the forests of the Congo Basin, and Southeast Asia.

The investigations proposed by the selected journalists touch on themes related to the most important supply chains of the global economy, as well as the corruption and legal loopholes that enable industrial-scale deforestation."

LJR's note: The selected Latin American journalists are César Molinares (Colombia), Joseph Poliszuk (Venezuela), Milagros Salazar (Peru), Hyury Potter, Manuela Andreoni and Jessica Brice (Brasil).
