In his seven years as a reporter for Honolulu Civil Beat, Nathan Eagle has covered everything from state government and commercial fishing to ocean-related issues and politics. Most recently, he's been focused on putting an intense spotlight on climate change and how it's affecting Hawaii in a special yearlong project called Hawaii 2040.
Nathan moved to Oahu in March 2012 after serving as managing editor of The Garden Island. It was a position as environment reporter for this century-old daily newspaper on Kauai that lured him from his native Ohio in 2007.
Nathan has degrees in journalism and Spanish from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and has won statewide and national awards for a multimedia project on Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument (The Last Wild Place), a series on ocean safety (Dying For Vacation) as well as public service reporting and online news reporting.
