Here’s your chance to meet the team, and see their work.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”30″][vc_text_separator title=”Shinta Maharani – Indonesia” color=”orange”][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”30″][vc_column_text]Shinta came through our Biodiversity Media training in Indonesia this year, and has been producing great stories for TEMPO and VICE Indonesia. Originally from Jogjakarta, Shinta has investigated illegal sand mining, deforestation and plastic pollution.

Right now, she is working on a piece looking into Bio-piracy in Indonesia.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”30″][image_with_animation image_url=”53947″ alignment=”” animation=”Fade In”][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”30″][vc_text_separator title=”Ahmed Saba – Egypt” color=”orange”][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”30″][vc_column_text]Ahmed is a writer, photographer and videographer with a rapid output that has already seen him publish more than 20 pieces from the Biodiversity talks in less than 5 days.

With pieces placed in Akher Alanbaa, the International Daily bulletin, and Egypt Youth, Ahmed has almost single-handedly fed local media in Egypt with a range of stories promoting the values and opportunities on display at the UN Biodiversity talks.

While Saudi Arabia isn’t high on most people’s list of “biodiversity champions”, Rabiya’s reporting has already combined critical pieces on food systems and biodiversity as well as light-hearted appeals to Saudi’s millenial generation.

She has come a long way since becomming the first young reporter to write about climate change in Sudan’s national newspapers in 2016.

Here at the UN Biodiversity talks, Lina is focussing on the role that international food systems play in causing widespread biodiversity loss, and particularly the role that food importers, like Sudan, can play in changing that.

This is no suprise to Hairil, who also graduated from our Biodiversity capacity building programs across Indonesia this year.

Hairil has a key focus on marine conservation, deforestation and a series of articles focussing on palm oil soon to come.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”30″][image_with_animation image_url=”53942″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In”][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”30″][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
