Since 1971, over 100,000 volunteers have joined our scientists in the field as research assistants, who between them have contributed more than 11 million hours of their time to frontline environmental research all over the world.
Earthwatch expeditions are not ecotours, voluntours, or volunteer vacations.
Our volunteers are people of all ages, from diverse backgrounds all over the world. Earthwatch volunteers are individuals united by a desire to connect and protect our planet,
its rich biodiversity, endangered species, and threatened habitats.
As an Earthwatch volunteer, you'll learn hands on about important environmental issues,
and directly support the research that seeks solutions to some of today's most pressing environmental challenges.
