Support wanted for conservation

EVERY spring, Earthwatch volunteers join dozens of conservation research expeditions.

They unlock the power of science on behalf of the habitats, species and environmental challenges that need it the most.

Spring expeditions are critical for many Earthwatch projects, starting the field season with essential baseline data.

As an international environmental charity we are appealing for volunteers to help our scientists in Europe and beyond.

If you would like to join us on one of our expeditions in the field this spring – until March 15 – we are offering the special rate of a ten per cent reduction on selected teams.

As an Earthwatch volunteer you could be surveying bottlenose dolphins in Mediterranean waters to help scientists to combat threats to the dolphins and their ecosystem (Dolphins of Greece); on our Amazon Riverboat Exploration expedition you are needed to help our scientists to conserve the Amazon basin’s pink dolphins, giant river otters, monkeys, turtles, fishes and macaws; and on Meerkats of the Kalahari you can visit the real ‘Meerkat Manor’ to find out more about 15 colonies of meerkats in South Africa’s Kuruman River Reserve.

Whatever your area of interest, we have the expedition for you this spring. And remember – you’ll be helping critical conservation research to get off to a great start in 2011.
