Gaea Katreena Cabico is a journalist from the Philippines. She writes stories about the environment, climate crisis, human rights, and the coronavirus pandemic.
Cabico joined Philstar.com, a Manila-based online newsroom, in 2017. In 2019, she began environmental and climate reporting because she believes that the climate crisis is a cross-cutting issue and affects people’s basic rights.
Cabico was one of the top 10 finalists in the 2020 Journalism for an Equitable Asia Award for her story about the human and environmental costs of an airport project in Manila Bay. She wants to do more stories about communities vulnerable to the effects of climate change and the people on the periphery.
