Maurice Tamman is a reporter and editor on the Reuters enterprise unit based in New York City. Most recently he published an expansive examination of how climate change is causing chaos for fisheries around the planet. Previously, Tamman ran the unit’s forensic data team, which he created after joining Reuters in 2011 from The Wall Street Journal. While running that team, Reuters produced several data-driven, award-winning projects, including a series documenting how a small group of lawyers influences the cases heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, skewing its docket toward corporate and business interests. The Reuters team was also the first news organization to examine raw data from coastal tidal gauges, documenting an unprecedented rise in sea levels. He also has worked at the Courier-Post in Camden, N.J., Florida Today in Melbourne, Fla., the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Herald-Tribune in Sarasota, Fla. He is an avid sailor who lives on his 53-foot boat, Zennora. He has three grown children, two of whom also live on boats.

We work hard throughout the year to not only get the stories, but to get them right. And, for what? Awards, of course! Now it’s time to shift the spotlight on ourselves for a moment while we honor the best environmental reporting of 2018 at SEJ’s Annual Awards for Reporting on the Environment, including the first Ray Reece "Excellence in Environmental Journalism" Student Award and the second annual $10,000 Nina Mason Pulliam Award for the best of the best. We’ll kick off the celebration with an eye-opening look at the best environmental photography from the past year.
