If you’re a student with a passion for adventure travel, science, and the natural world, Earthwatch Student Group Expeditions were created for you.

These are unique opportunities to discover what it means to be a working scientist engaged in projects that help protect, conserve, and make sense of the natural world.


WHERE DO EARTHWATCH STUDENT GROUP EXPEDITIONS GO?

Here are a few examples of travel opportunities available on Earthwatch Student Group Expeditions:

  • Step aboard a riverboat on the Peruvian Amazon to help conserve pink river dolphins, giant river otters, monkeys, turtles, and macaws
  • Take a hike in South Africa to study hyenas and other scavengers to document the threats they face and help find ways to protect them
  • Explore the clear waters off the coast of Belize to help establish protected areas for sharks along the magnificent Mesoamerican Reef

If your school is not offering an Earthwatch Student Group Expedition, ask your teacher to consider leading one. Alternatively, we have Teen Expeditions that you can join.



WHY TRAVEL WITH EARTHWATCH?

When you travel with Earthwatch, you benefit from our more than 40 years of experience in creating inspiring opportunities for volunteer participants in real-world field research. You’ll work with top international scientists on a project related to biology, volcanology, climate change, environmental science, or archaeology, among other subjects. You’ll have the opportunity to become a full participant in the scientific process - perhaps being among the first in the world to see a newly discovered species or explore an ancient archaeological site.
