If you've ever thought about doing more to protect Australia's koalas, then now's your chance.
The last Koala Ecology team on St Bees Island, QLD is running this October and Dr Alistair Melzer needs your help. Working in a pristine location, your job will be to hike around the island and track radio-collared koalas in order to find clues to their health and population status.
There are other ways to support Earthwatch too, and we've compiled a list of fundraising events around Australia which will get your heart racing. Your support is invaluable to Earthwatch and we are grateful for every step taken along the way.
So please consider fundraising for Earthwatch or joining a project. Our scientists need your help to understand and protect our environment.
