We have a long history in providing career development training and capacity building opportunities for early- to mid-career researchers, in the UK and overseas. We are continually evolving programmes to support the development of environmental professionals.
Earthwatch supports scientific training opportunities for conservationists who are underfunded and in need of practical field experience. This enables future environmental leaders to realise their potential and ensure long-lasting, positive impacts on their community and the planet.
For more than 20 years, we have enhanced the skills and experience of talented conservationists working in environmental science, education and community engagement.
More than 760 scientists have been empowered to take strides in their careers, through vital conservation research training on our projects, research grants and a global business mentoring scheme.
The Earthwatch Neville Shulman Awards give individuals the opportunity to implement new research, increase community engagement in environmental projects and tackle some of the world’s big environmental challenges.
Our Award winners represent communities from over 30 countries from Madagascar to Mongolia and from Angola to Argentina. They have provided support to projects as diverse as corals to volcanoes and from butterflies to Pangolins.
