Want to make the most of your time between terms and also do something for the world way off-campus?
Earthwatch is offering college and university students an opportunity to join one of three different scientific research projects at a reduced contribution during the January 2010 break.
These projects are a great way for students interested in biology, environmental science, and ecology to gain valuable field experience, connect with and get trained by professional scientists, and prepare themselves for a future in scientific and environmental fields.
By volunteering with Earthwatch, you’ll gain valuable skills - and make a difference for a world in trouble.
Help save threatened macaws from poachers and development in the Peruvian Amazon. Or, get real life field training searching for one of the world's rarest carnivores, Madagascar's fosa. Or, get your hands dirty learning how the amazingly diverse caterpillars of Costa Rica protect themselves from predators and respond to climate change.
You can plunge into the world, learn new skills, and be part of the growing movement for a more sustainable future.
On these Earthwatch expeditions, you get hands-on experience working with the world's leading scientists and conservationists, doing work that's based on urgent research needs.
