Earthwatch is a global environmental charity

We create knowledge and inspire action through experiential learning programs in key areas where we can have the most impact: keeping us ahead of climate change, saving the reef and oceans, restoring our iconic landscapes and protecting our unique wildlife.

Central to our approach is the use of citizen science, where people gather data to generate environmental insights, inform future policy and motivate long-term behaviour change.

Our Vision

Working together to create a society that lives in balance with nature

In just 50 years we have lost over half of our wildlife and we have as little as 12 years to limit the impacts of climate change.

Collaboration between governments, policy-makers, businesses, educators, students, and scientists is essential if we are to tackle these complex challenges.

Earthwatch helps make this happen. Using a blend of science and engagement, we deliver evidence-led experiences that educate and inspire action to halt environmental decline.

Our Mission

To empower people to save the natural world

Empowering people to action for the environment is at the heart of what we do. We are building on half a century of bringing people, science and nature together to create robust scientific knowledge. We are focused on key challenges where we can make the most difference.

Around the world, our vibrant Earthwatch community inspires and drives positive change through individual and collective action, creating a more sustainable future and advancing scientific knowledge.

The changes we all make in our homes, our workplaces and our communities, along with contributions to scientific research, combine to make an impact globally.
