Media Coverage Success: The Wildlife Conservation Society

Occasionally reporters let us know about their use of releases from Newswise. Not long ago, one of our reporter subscribers shared a link to her article in which she used our release from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).

The WCS posted a release about the Jerdon’s Babbler, a small bird found in Myanmar, thought to be extinct since the 1940s. A team of scientists re-discovered the bird after hearing its distinct call.

The next month that reporter picked up the story to include in her piece on distinguishing endangered from extinct species. She opened with a brief introduction to the Babbler’s story, and included similar cases of animals that were thought to be, or are soon to be, extinct.

If you have a story of your own success, send it to us at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) so we can feature you in our blog!
