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.

The Oceans – The Lungs of the Earth

Oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth and are the source of vital resources including food, freshwater, and oxygen. They are also important for recreation, economic development, and a stable climate. The oceans provide an unimaginable array of biological diversity and habitats, containing more than 100 million species of plants and animals. Many are...

What is the Cause of Climate Change?

The climate is constantly changing, and scientists know that human activity has played a major role in the changes we are experiencing. Climate change encompasses more than just a warming world; it impacts the availability of food and water, the health of ecosystems, transportation systems, wildlife, and much more. It is vitally important that we...

How the Ocean Works

Ocean is the world’s largest source of oxygen and the habitat for a variety of marine life. It regulates the global climate and provides a means of trade and transport. In addition, its ecosystems provide millions of people with a sustainable source of food and income. But the Ocean also faces a number of threats...

Wildlife – A Natural Resource Under Threat

Wildlife is the term for the plants and animals that live in the wild. It originally referred to non-domesticated animal species, but has come to include all living organisms in an ecosystem. Wildlife exists in all habitats, including deserts, woods, plains, rain forests, grasslands and the most developed urban areas. Wildlife is a natural resource...

The Ocean Economy

The Ocean is a massive body of salt water that covers 70% of the Earth and makes life on our planet possible. It is also the largest heat sink on the planet, absorbing 90% of the excess greenhouse gases produced by human activities. The oceans also provide habitats for many important species, and they are...

The Importance of Wildlife Conservation

Wildlife is the term for animals that live in wild environments and have not been domesticated. They can be found in all ecosystems, including deserts, grasslands, wetlands, forests, and urban areas.
