Earthwatch Institute is a program provider offering 29 abroad programs. Programs offered include Volunteer and Research abroad programs in 21 countries such as South Africa, Italy, Peru, and Madagascar.

At Earthwatch, we believe that future decisions regarding the environment must be based on objective science. We must engage and empower people and organizations to act responsibly if they are to be sustainable. We bring together institutions and individuals to understand and inform critical environmental issues by combining world class scientific field research with experiential learning programs that inspire the leadership needed to promote personal and organizational change.

Our research program involves a global community of researchers, conservation volunteers, NGOs and businesses, working together towards a sustainable environment. Earthwatch supports about 60 projects across nearly 40 countries, and draws $20 million in annual revenues, with more than 85% of its budget supporting science research and engagement, and going towards programmatic support. Since 1971 Earthwatch has inspired 93,000 volunteers to join vital conservation research projects in the field, helping to make us the best environmental volunteer non-profit organization in the world.

As one of the world’s largest private funders of scientific research, our research program involves a global community of leading researchers, conservation volunteers, NGOs and businesses. We’re dedicated to creating an environmental legacy through scientific research projects, educational programs and engaging people in field research.
