Empowering people to save the natural world

We are a research charity working to create positive behaviour change for environment.

We run public expeditions, corporate learning workshops, educational initiatives, citizen science programs and more. 

Keep Ahead of Climate Change

The global climate crisis is the most pressing environmental challenge humanity now faces. Earthwatch can help you be a part of the solution and together we can keep ahead of climate change.



Restore our Iconic Landscapes

Earthwatch Australia’s programs build awareness and evidence of the interconnectedness between biodiversity, ecosystems and ecosystem services, and the value nature provides in sustaining our livelihoods.



Save the Reef and Oceans

From biodiversity and food supply to the livelihoods of millions, so much depends on our oceans. Coral reefs are home to one quarter of all life in the oceans, and provide humans with immense benefits such as coastal protection, fisheries, and tourism.



Protect our Unique Wildlife

Australia is renowned for its unique wildlife, with more than 70% of our species found nowhere else on earth. We can stop the decline of our wildlife by helping people reconnect with nature.
