Expedition Open Day
Saturday 5 February, 10am – 4.30pm
Our inspiring and informative Volunteer Open Day is the perfect opportunity to find out exactly what to expect from an Earthwatch expedition.
This is a free, informal, no-pressure Open Day where our expedition experts can give you lots of valuable advice and answer your questions. We look forward to meeting you!
Our Expedition Open Days are intended for people who are new to Earthwatch, or have never been on an Earthwatch expedition. You will have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the opportunities available, and chat with our friendly staff about the amazing experiences you can have on our important conservation research expeditions.

Why Join an Earthwatch Expedition?
Participation on one of our expeditions can help make a major contribution to environmental research and conservation. It's also a chance to connect with the area you visit as you learn a huge amount about the conservation issues you are helping to study. You're sure to have a great time along the way. Think safari or whale watching where you don't just see, you learn, you don't just witness, you help. You won't be short of breathtaking scenery and close-up wildlife encounters either. What more could you want?
This coming year, thousands of like-minded volunteers from around the world will take up the call to help Earthwatch understand the causes of and solutions to major environmental problems that threaten everything from single species to entire ecosystems.
Scientific knowledge provides the basis for all environmental policies and actions. Behind every environmental success story lies a body of scientific research that informed its solutions. Yet, there remain today huge gaps in our understanding of many environmental problems. Until we understand what management interventions are needed, biodiversity losses will continue to mount, ecosystems will become further degraded, and the delicate balance of the Earth's natural systems will be altered.
You can be part of the solution by becoming an Earthwatch volunteer, providing vital funding for research and giving your time to help scientists understand critical environmental problems.
