Nature is better together.

Schools of fish, herds of bison, bales of turtles, and many animals move in groups. But whether it’s a leap of leopards or a conspiracy of lemurs, they all have one thing in common: They’ve discovered the benefits of exploring this world together.

And what do you call a bunch of adventurous travelers collaborating with scientists to save nature? An expedition of Earthwatchers, of course.

In addition to corporate outings and student groups, we can arrange expeditions for alum associations, community groups, zoo or aquarium staff, and other affiliations. View our Group Terms and Conditions for detailed information.

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.
