Earthwatch is an international environmental charity

We create knowledge and inspire action through hands-on projects and programs to keep us ahead of climate change, to save the reef and oceans, to restore our iconic landscapes and protect our unique wildlife.

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

We empower people to save the natural world through direct action and policy influence on critical environmental issues.

We create knowledge through rigorous and relevant science that informs decision making, whilst our engaging experiences enable anyone to get hands on and make a difference.

Our Vision

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

Living beyond our means

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, civil society 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 arrest 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.
