World Press Freedom Day: Macaranga

Macaranga is a Malaysian environmental journalism portal founded by Wong Siew Lyn and Law Yao-Hua. They produce in-depth, research-based features, train environment journalists, and do tremendous work raising awareness, driving change, and building an informed community dedicated to environmental conservation.

In light of World Press Freedom Day 2024, we speak to the co-founders of Macaranga on the challenges of running an independent media company, speaking truth to power and what gives them hope during an increasingly worsening climate crisis.
