Earthwatch has expanded its work on climate change and now has 19 research projects running throughout the world, including Climate Change at the Arctic's Edge, Bahamian Reef Survey, Butterflies of Mount Fuji, Tracking Baja's Black Sea Turtles, Gray Whale Migrations, and others. "Stated simply, climate change is the most urgent environmental issue we face," says Ed Wilson, President and CEO of Earthwatch. "To have a meaningful impact, we have to focus on two things-ramping up the science and engaging the public. Given the shrinking window of opportunity, it's critical that we reach out to as many audiences as possible. As businesses get more and more concerned about the impacts of climate change, 'Beat the Heat' is a perfect way for us to open a dialogue with this important audience."
