The National Press Foundation has chosen 20 journalists for our upcoming program, Understanding Fishing and Conservation Challenges.

Over five days, journalists will take a deep dive into the challenges facing the world’s oceans. They will learn about the impact of climate change and development on coastal communities and marine health; sustainable fishing practices; offshore drilling; seafood fraud and mislabeling; and more.

The training will take place March 17-21 in San Francisco and Monterey Bay.
