YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

Earthwatch depends on donations - above and beyond what we raise from volunteers who participate on our expeditions - in order to deliver our global conservation mission. In fact, volunteer contributions provide only half of the total resources Earthwatch needs to sustain over 40 field research expeditions, a wide variety of educational programs, corporate sustainability trainings, and more each year.
