As an independent, non-profit environmental media outlet, Mongabay depends on sustained support from readers like you to keep our unique initiatives alive and growing.


The Mongabay Impact Fund empowers readers to guide and support our reporting on today’s most pressing conservation issues. Mongabay readers are dispersed globally, display a wide variety of interests, and are often leaders in the field of conservation. By becoming an Impact Fund member, you can provide valuable feedback and support for the thorough explorations of critical conservation topics you have come to rely on at Mongabay. This unique fund delivers sustainable and predictable levels of support that will catalyze enhanced reporting far into the future.

Though you can choose any level of support, please consider joining this new membership program at $30/month. That’s just $1 a day to ensure the future of the news and inspiration that you rely on!

The basic requirement for Mongabay Impact Fund members is a monthly contribution. Funders may then choose to make their voice heard through voting on our Mongabay Impact Fund portal, which includes top conservation reporting initiatives from our website:

Endangered Environmentalists
Conservation Effectiveness
Education (Kids News)
Almost Famous Animals
Opportunity map (beta)


If you’re interested in using another payment method, we also have JustGive and PayPal (credit card or Paypal account) as options.

If you’d like to make a one-time donation instead of participating in the Impact Fund, you can do so via this page.



Your tax-deductible donation to Mongabay directly supports our efforts to report on vital conservation news from around the planet.

Mongabay serves as a powerful educational tool that empowers scientists, academics, conservationists, activists and everyday people to effectively address global environmental problems.

In standing with us, you are joining a vibrant global support network that makes our work possible.

When you give on a monthly basis, it helps us budget more efficiently for future programs.
