Mitch Tobin

Mitch Tobin, award-winning journalist and environmental consultant, has covered environmental issues for the Tucson Citizen and Arizona Daily Star for nearly seven years. He has won numerous awards for explanatory, feature and deadline writing, including two first prizes from the AP in environmental reporting for series on water and border issues. In 2006, he was named one of eight fellows of the Alicia Patterson Foundation, sponsor of the nation’s oldest writing fellowship for US Journalists. Legislating Noah’s Ark grew out of Tobin’s 10-part series on Arizona’s endangered species, which was a finalist for the 2004 John B. Oakes Award for Distinguished Environmental Journalism. As a reporter, Tobin has won fellowships from the Vermont Law School, the National Tropical Botanical Gardens in Kauai, Hawaii, and the University of Colorado’s Scripps Howard Institute and the Property and Environment Research Center in Bozeman, Montana. Prior to becoming a newspaper reporter, he worked for Yale economist and Nobel laureate James Tobin (no relation), the American Enterprise Institute, the Urban Institute, the Arizona League of Conservation Voters, and the National Parks Conservation Association.
