Bequests and Wills

Leave a legacy towards a sustainable future

Large or small, when you include a gift in your will to Earthwatch, you leave a legacy of your values in the world and empower a bold change for future generations to protect Australia’s natural ecosystems and biodiversity. Leaving a gift of this kind is a way to ensure that the values you carried through life are continued, leaving behind a compassionate, meaningful and aligned legacy. 

When you leave a gift in your will to Earthwatch, you directly help to expand current citizen science programs, continuing the work that Earthwatch Australia has been doing for the last 40 years. 

Your extraordinary gift will help researchers and citizen scientists to gather critical scientific data to generate environmental insights, inform future policy and motivate long-term behaviour change. Even a gift as little as 1% of your estate can make all the difference for the global conservation effort, supporting regenerative projects within four key areas:

Benefits of leaving a gift in your Will to Earthwatch
