Amazônia Minada | Mined Amazon

Country:

Authors:

Mined Amazon is a map, published on the InfoAmazonia website, which displays information about mining applications within strict-use protected areas of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. The Mined Amazon Twitter bot (@amazonia_minada) sends automatic messages each time a new mining request is authorized within those protected areas.

The project was established in 2019 after receiving funding from News Innovation Grant Projects via the International Center for Journalists and The Wall Street Journal.

With the support of the Amazon Rainforest Journalism Fund and the Pulitzer Center, Mined Amazon will also begin to track mining applications from within indigenous lands in the Amazon region.

With that information, Mined Amazon will produce reporting projects about who is behind those applications and about which indigenous lands are most affected by illegal mining.


Amazônia Minada é um mapa, publicado no site InfoAmazonia, que mostra informações sobre requerimentos de mineração que estão dentro de unidades de conservação de proteção integral da Amazônia brasileira. O perfil robô no twitter (@amazonia_minada) envia mensagens automáticas sempre que um novo pedido minerário é protocolado dentro de áreas protegidas.

O projeto foi criado em 2019 após receber uma bolsa News Innovation Grant Projects, concedida pelo International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) e o The Wall Street Journal.

Com o apoio do Amazon Rainforest Journalism Fund e do Pulitzer Center, o Amazônia Minada vai passar a mostrar também requerimentos de mineração dentro de terras indígenas da Amazônia.

Com essas informações, vamos produzir reportagens sobre quem são os donos desses requerimentos e quais as terras indígenas mais afetadas pelo interesse da mineração ilegal.
