We design our Earthwatch Teen Expeditions specifically and exclusively for 15- to 18-year-olds. They’re unlike any other experience a teenager can have.
Do something special this summer: investigate the impact of climate change on Borneo’s rainforest, and meet inspiring people from around the world.
The rainforests of Borneo are some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. They are home to thousands of plant species, countless types of insect, a vast array of birds, and some of the world's most iconic and endangered mammals: the orangutan, Sumatran rhino, clouded leopard, and pygmy elephant. But rainforests are under constant threat from unsustainable logging practices, farming, and climate change.
Help expert scientists to study how these threats have impacted forests, and how resilient these rainforests are to the likely effects of climate change. As a teen team volunteer, you'll trek deep into the heart of the tropical rainforest and, with a team of scientists and research assistants, assess the structure of the rainforest.
