Earthwatch is an international environmental charity. We bring individuals from all walks of life together with world-class scientists to work for the good of the planet. The Earthwatch community continues to grow rapidly, with participation from members of the general public we call "citizen scientists," to corporate employees, to educators and students. All bring their knowledge, passion, and experience to support our work, improve scientific understanding, and inspire change at across all touch-points in their lives.
Earthwatch engages people worldwide in scientific field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment. They work from several offices, located in the United States, United Kingdom, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, and Brazil. We work with the general public, scientists, communities, educators, students, and corporate fellows. Their projects take place in more than forty countries around the globe.
They enable scientific field research
Together with leading scientists, they create impactful field research experiences that facilitate and disseminate world-class scientific research. They measure their success through outcomes such as peer-reviewed publications produced by their researchers and their outreach events that engage wider audiences with their work.
They promote education
They provide transformational learning experiences that promote environmentally sustainable action. They work with educators to help them bring their experiences back to the classroom to foster new generations of environmental leaders.
They create a sustainable environment
They work with businesses and nonprofit organizations. They enable them to implement sustainable policies, processes, and practices that promote environmental responsibility both in and out of the office. They work to sustain wildlife populations and to improve the quality and quantity of habitats and ecosystems. They work to preserve their cultural heritage and improve livelihoods worldwide. They make a tangible and significant contribution to conventions, agendas, management plans, development plans, and government policies. They do this regionally, nationally, and internationally.
