Mission Statement

Earthwatch's mission is to engage people worldwide in scientific field research and education in order to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment.

Description

Earthwatch enables people from all walks of life to join leading scientists working on crucial, environmental research projects locally and globally. We currently support about 60 projects across nearly 40 countries.

We're one of the world's largest private funders of scientific research, and we're dedicated to walking the talk. Outcomes from Earthwatch projects are published in hundreds of peer-reviewed journal papers every year, and shared with partner organizations, government agencies and policy-makers. We support research into:

  • Ecosystems and Wildlife: Enhancing and protecting biodiversity in global ecosystems that provide us with valuable goods and services, such as clean drinking water, food, timber and medicines.
  • Ocean Health: Protecting marine biodiversity, focusing on those parts of the ocean most quickly impacted by society: highly threatened coastal habitats such as mangroves and coral reefs.
  • Climate Change: Improving our understanding of how climate change is affecting different environments, and find ways to help communities mitigate the impacts or adapt to the changes.
  • Archaeology and Culture: Shining a light on the combined genetic, ecological, cultural, and linguistic variation discovered in native biological and cultural communities; unearthing the past in a way that safeguards their future.
