#SEJSpotlight graphic for Tara Lumpkin


After three decades of working with people and nature as an environmental journalist and anthropologist, Tara founded Voices for Biodiversity, an online magazine that publishes the stories of eco-reporters from around the globe. She has been employed in international development and conservation work in both the U.S. and overseas. Tara has a master’s degree in creative writing; has worked as an environmental journalist; writes poetry, fiction and nonfiction; and has taught writing at the college level.

A member since 2010, Tara uses her SEJ membership to "help find local biodiversity stories around the globe allowing me to reach out to prospective grassroots citizen-journalists in those locales. I also re-post many stories written by SEJ members on Voices for Biodiversity's social media."
