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.

Biological Oceanography

Ocean is the largest living system on Earth and has a profound impact on our planet’s weather, temperature and food supply. Its depths and waters contain billions of species ranging from microscopic algae to large cetaceans. It provides crucial environmental services like climate regulation and a means of transportation. The ocean is also rich in...

The Importance of Wildlife Conservation

Wildlife, comprising of animals, birds, insects and plants in their natural habitat, is a national resource which helps to maintain the ecological balance of nature. It also plays an important role in attracting tourists and thus helping the economy of a country. However, due to human activities, the wildlife is losing its habitat and hence...

The Dangers of Climate Change

Climate Change refers to changes in Earth’s climate system that have been caused by human activities, including rising global air and ocean temperatures, melting ice sheets and glaciers, and changing weather patterns such as drought and floods. The changes are causing harm to natural and human systems. They threaten the very things we depend on...

The Importance of Wildlife Conservation

Wildlife refers to all living undomesticated species of plants and animals that inhabit the earth’s wild habitat. These organisms are a crucial part of the ecological balance of the world. The preservation of all wildlife is essential for the well-being of mankind, whose very existence is dependent on these organisms’ natural environment. Wildlife conservation includes...

How Does Climate Change Affect Us?

Climate Change is the long-term average increase in global air and ocean temperature caused by human activities such as burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), deforestation, land-use changes, and agriculture. These activities increase the amount of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which warms Earth’s surface and prevents some of the sun’s energy...

The Ocean – A Place of Adventure

Ocean is a vast area of water that covers the Earth, separating continents from each other. Its waters are full of life, supporting many diverse species and regulating the global climate. Oceans are also a source of energy and raw materials, including the oxygen we breathe and food we eat. The vastness of the sea...

The Importance of Wildlife

When humans occupy an area, they can often find themselves sharing it with wild animals. The term wildlife refers to undomesticated animal species, and includes everything from birds in the sky to fish in the sea. It includes all terrestrial and aquatic creatures, but excludes pets and livestock. Wild animals can be found throughout the...
