Anthropologist Tara Waters Lumpkin is founder and executive director of a nonprofit project and e-zine called Voices for Biodiversity.
Our goal is to provide a multimedia platform where citizen eco-reporters can share their stories about biodiversity and their relationships to other species and the ecosystems that support us all. We hope to awaken humanity to the reality that we must move away from an anthropocentric toward an eco-centric worldview.
As a nonprofit, the organization cannot pay writers, but this looks like a great opportunity for those who wish to make a contribution as well as aspiring environmental writers looking to develop a portfolio of work. Students are also welcome to participate.
