Earthwatch is an international environmental charity that aims to engage people worldwide in scientific field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment.

We believe that all sectors of society need to act and address the challenges facing our natural world, including business, government, educators, researchers, leaders and everyday people.

Our work aligns to the Sustainable Development Goals, using the global framework for a prosperous and sustainable future for the planet and its people by 2030.

We focus our research and citizen science programs on areas where we can make a difference now: protecting our unique wildlife; saving the reef and oceans; restoring our iconic landscapes; and keeping ahead of climate change.

Helen Macpherson Smith Trust

A cross-sector partnership with HMST and Parks Victoria, “Stronger Together”, is a citizen science project building the capacity of regional schools and communities to understand, monitor, and take action to mitigate climate change impacts on Victoria’s biodiversity.

The aim of the project is to build resilience in our parklands through community stewardship of the local environment. Community members collect data on behaviours and geographic changes observed in local climate-sensitive species. Local knowledge, observations and science will inform land management and intervention strategies for species threatened by climate change.
