The practice of environmental journalism took form during the "environmental movement" of the 1960s and 1970s. The pioneers of this type of journalism wanted the general public to know about the environmental crisis of the time.

In the 1990s, the Society for Environmental Journalists was formed, to "advance public understanding of environmental issues by improving the quality, accuracy, and visibility of environmental reporting."
