Matt M., Sharks and Rays of Monterey

“Earthwatch is doing a lot for the hearts and souls of teachers. They are designing experiences that ask them to look more closely at the world and make connections to the bigger picture. It’s about giving teachers a chance to come alive and be role models for young people. It’s about changing lives.”
Jana D., Climate Change at the Arctic’s Edge
“I love to travel and explore the outdoors and nature. I also love to teach. Earthwatch Expeditions allow me to combine my passions into a single adventure that is fun for me and my students.”
