  • Providing a home for investigative journalists interested in environmental issues;
  • Hosting geo-narrative platforms that use cutting-edge mapping techniques and forensic data tools to improve reportage;
  • Stimulating transnational and transcultural investigative reportage through project or research-based Oxpeckers Fellowships;
  • Sharing investigative resources / source documents / data, as well as specialist tools and skills through Oxpeckers manuals and workshops;
  • Curating specialist environmental reporting and research projects on behalf of media partners;
  • Publishing our own exclusive environmental investigations, in both legacy and new media.
