Research areas across four vital areas

Climate Change

Climate change poses one of the most significant challenges to the planet. Earthwatch supports research that improves the understanding of how climate change affects different environments and finds ways to help communities reduce their impacts and adapt to changes.


Archeology & Culture

This research highlights the genetic, ecological, cultural, and linguistic variation discovered in the native biological and cultural communities. These research programs unearth the past in a way that safeguards the future.


Wildlife & Ecosystems

Habitats and animals all over the world are threatened. This research aims to create conservation plans and help protect our planet and its inhabitants in today's ever-evolving landscape.


Ocean Health

This research seeks to protect marine biodiversity with a focus on those parts of the ocean most quickly impacted by society, such as the highly threatened coastal habitats, including mangroves and coral reefs.

What Is the Ocean?

Ocean: The water that covers more than half of the planet’s surface and plays a critical role in climate and weather. It absorbs and distributes solar radiation, regulates global climate, and creates tidal patterns that reliably flood and ebb each day. The ocean is made up of many different kinds of water. Some, like seawater,...

The Importance of Wildlife Conservation

Wildlife is all the living creatures in nature, including animals, plants, fungi and microscopic organisms. It includes both vertebrates (animals with backbones) and invertebrates (animals without backbones). It is a vital part of the ecological system and provides stability to different processes. In order to maintain a balanced ecosystem, it is essential that the wildlife...

The Effects of Climate Change

A growing body of research shows that our planet is getting warmer, and it’s mainly because of human activities. These activities involve burning fossil fuels like oil, coal and natural gas, which releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, warming the Earth. Scientists have determined that global temperatures are rising faster than at any time in...

Explore the Depths of the Ocean

Ocean is the largest habitat on Earth, home to an incredible variety of marine organisms and ecosystems. It regulates global climate and weather, stores carbon dioxide, provides half of the world’s oxygen, and makes it possible for humans to travel around the globe. It also serves as a major transportation system for goods, people, and...

The Importance of Wildlife Conservation

The word “wildlife” is the collective term for wild animals that live in a natural environment. Wildlife consists of animals that are not domesticated or tamed by humans and includes all non-domesticated animal species as well as plants, fungi, and microorganisms.

Writing an Article About Wildlife

Wildlife are non-domesticated animals and their habitats which are considered to be part of the natural world. Wild animals play an important role in maintaining the ecological balance of the environment and are also an essential source of economic activities such as tourism, hunting, fishing etc. Hence it is very important to conserve them. There...

5 Ways the Ocean Affects Our Wellbeing

The Ocean covers 70 percent of the Earth’s surface and is home to a vast array of creatures from microscopic plankton to massive whales. It’s also responsible for producing the oxygen we breathe, regulating our climate and supplying us with food. It’s no wonder we feel a sense of calm and rejuvenation after spending time...

What Is Climate Change and How Does It Affect Us?

Climate Change refers to the overall warming of Earth’s atmosphere, water, and land, along with changes in sea level, weather patterns, and other indicators. It affects everything we depend on and value—including food, freshwater, wildlife, transportation, ecosystems, people’s health, and more. Climate change is happening now. It’s the result of human activities, especially burning fossil...
