About Earthwatch


Earthwatch Institute - Australia

Earthwatch Institute is an independent, non-profit environmental organisation. Our mission is to engage people worldwide in scientific research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment. Earthwatch gives people the opportunity to be involved in scientific conservation research by becoming a member of a research team.

It is through this hands-on, experiential learning that Earthwatch meets its core objectives for creating a sustainable future:

Unlike other environmental organisations, Earthwatch puts people in the field where they can assist scientists in their field work. They are part of the action. They learn new skills and develop a deeper understanding of their role in building a sustainable future. We believe that teaching and promoting scientific literacy is the best way to approach and solve the many complex environmental issues facing society today.
