🥇 GOLD The Robert Spiers Benjamin Award, Best reporting in any medium on Latin America, for “The Amazon, Undone"
Comment from the judges: “The six-part series combines on-the-ground reporting with data journalism and satellite imagery to capture an array of destructive forces. We learn how beef illegally raised in the Amazon ends up on Americans’ dinner plates as ranchers and packers evade laws designed to protect the biome. McCoy vividly describes the lawlessness he encounters and the deadly consequences faced by those trying to stop it, among them his friend Dom Phillips, who was killed along with indigenous rights defender Bruno Pereira while investigating illegal fishing and logging.”
