Earthwatch works collaboratively with community groups, social enterprises and non-government organisations (NGOs) to bridge the gaps between science, community and nature. 

We are citizen science program development experts

With over 50 years of global experience under our belt, we are experts in developing and implementing citizen science projects. Accessible for all ages and backgrounds, we develop scientifically robust programs which bring our citizens closer to nature, where no formal training is required. 

Our programs adhere to the strictest health and safety standards to keep our participants safe.
