Explore the world by leading an Earthwatch Student Expedition, and stand in awe as your school students become full participants in real-world research in locations as diverse as Madagascar, Texas, or Belize.
These are unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for your students to discover what it means to be a working scientist engaged in field research that helps protect, conserve, and make sense of the natural world.
Why Travel with Earthwatch?
When you travel with Earthwatch, you benefit from more than 40 years of experience in creating inspiring experiences for volunteer participants in real-world field research. You’ll work with top international scientists on projects related to biology, volcanology, climate change, environmental science, or archaeology. Your students will have the opportunity to become full participants in the scientific process – perhaps being among the first in the world to see a newly discovered species or explore an ancient archeological site.
Where Will You Go?
Where do Earthwatch Student Expeditions take you? Here are just a few examples of many travel and research opportunities available to high school groups:
- Step aboard a riverboat on the Peruvian Amazon to help conserve pink river dolphins, giant river otters, monkeys, turtles, and macaws.
- Hike across South Africa to study hyaenas and other scavengers to document the threats they face, and help find ways to protect them.
- Snorkel the clear waters off the coast of Belize to help establish protected areas for sharks along the magnificent Mesoamerican Reef.
