An environmental reporter is a journalist who focuses on reporting information on the environment. They may present such information by writing about it and then putting it on print, filming and then airing it on TV, etc.
Of course, anyone can actually do environmental reporting. Not everyone gets paid to do it, but anyone can do it! If you want to experience being an environmental reporter, give this activity a shot. Do it well, and you could help change the world!
No dangers! But if you plan on exploring nature for your piece, get your parents to go with you.
Pick a message. Before you do reporting, you first need to have something to report on. Your message can be anything environment-related that you’re interested in.
You can report on activities in your school that raise awareness about the environment, a global problem such as “climate change,” or maybe something else entirely.
Once you’re done picking a message, you need to do research on it. Research may involve talking to people who know a lot about your topic (e.g. your science teacher), reading books, surfing the net, etc.
After you feel that you’ve gathered every bit of information you need, start writing your report! But if you want, you can do both writing and researching at the same time.)
Make sure that you don’t get carried away with what you’re writing. You don’t want to make stuff up just for the sake of getting views! Also, there are laws against saying things about people, companies, etc. that aren’t true!
