Past projects and activities

Earthwatchers are saving the natural world through hands-on action and by creating knowledge – and you can join them.


Earthwatch was granted special permission to use the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR). Volunteers studied the growth rates of trees and other aspects of the carbon cycle such as soil respiration rates.

Catch me if you CAM

Catch Me If You CAM – a pilot project delivered in collaboration with the High Life Highland Countryside Rangers and supported by Earthwatch – engaged children with their local biodiversity through the use of trail camera technology, with the ultimate aim of inspiring them to take action to protect their planet.

Catch X

A global, web-based catchment platform that allows scientists, water stewards and non-expert users to easily access and visualise hydrological information for river catchment level water management and stewardship.

Freshwater Links

Our open data platform, where all are welcome to seek insights into trends in the Thames catchment area.

Earthworm Watch

Run in partnership with Natural History Museum (NHM), Earthworm Watch encouraged members of the public to get their hands dirty counting earthworms and categorising soils.
