Environmental News

· There are a number of media and news outlets that are popular in Georgia. Three of the main newspapers,

   Netgazeti, Publika, and 24 Saati, seem not to have environmentally focused sections. Additionally,

   Georgia Today is a good local outlet for general news, but it does not have a great deal of environmentally

   focused media either.
