What your advertising supports: Ecosystem Marketplace is a unique ‘one-stop shop’ for information about how ecosystems are conserved – and who pays for them and why. At the core of our work is the Ecosystem Marketplace website,  the world’s only free service  that informs and educates companies, policymakers, researchers, community groups and individual landowners interested in knowing the answer to these questions.

Ecosystem Marketplace advertising is not your typical contribution. Here, every dollar goes to journalists developing original articles – often in the field, reporting directly from the front lines of ecosystem protection and finance.

The cost to produce and publish most articles is around $400-$800 apiece. That means that advertising with Ecosystem Marketplace for three months supports a journalist to produce five breaking news pieces, two in-depth articles – or a combination of the two.

Readership: averages >14,000 unique readers per month (170,000+ unique readers total in 2015). Our readers hail from all over the world but are most commonly based in the United States, India, the United Kingdom, the Philippines, Canada, Germany, Australia, Indonesia, France, and Brazil. A recent readership survey revealed that our readers are composed of journalists, students, ecosystem asset developers, landowners, private investors, policymakers, and indigenous and civil society representatives.
