Mongabay is a non-profit environmental news website. The Gecko Project is an investigative reporting initiative established by UK-based non-profit Earthsight to shine a light on the corruption driving land grabs and the destruction of tropical rainforests. It seeks to create and maintain a sense of urgency over the role of large land deals, predominantly for food production, in some of the most pressing global challenges: climate change, the collapse of biodiversity, food security, and the rights of indigenous peoples and other rural communities.
