Earthwatchers are volunteers who take part in scientific research projects to help the environment.
We can’t tackle the biggest problems facing our planet without understanding them. The events of recent years have underlined the importance of science, data and members of the public working together to find solutions to the challenges we face.
Earthwatcher projects look at a range of issues, from identifying the most effective locations for tree planting initiatives to understanding how plastic pollution travels to our oceans. They are scientific projects that are designed to be enjoyable, rewarding, and fill key gaps in the data available to researchers around the world.
Anyone can take part, and we offer plenty of guidance on what you’ll need to do when you register as an Earthwatcher. Take a look at our projects to see what you can get involved with at the moment.
