Who’s covering science?

Aotearoa’s media landscape is constantly changing, but there are a number of keen science and environment reporters across different outlets. If you’re interested in pitching a story to a journalist, see who’s covering science to find out what areas they’re interested in.


We host Sciblogs, a blog for New Zealand scientists who want to reach out to a general audience to explain their science and how it relates to society. If you would like to inquire about contributing to Sciblogs, contact us here.

Science Communicators Association of New Zealand (SCANZ)

SCANZ provides a community for science communicators to discuss and debate their craft with others, and hosts science communication events throughout Aotearoa.
