Our vibrant global community of Earthwatchers makes small changes in their homes, workplaces and communities to create a more sustainable future through both individual and collective action.
We believe that working together is essential to tackling the threats to the natural world. Central to our approach is the use of citizen science, whereby people from all walks of life gather data to generate environmental insights and inform future policy. We connect these people through inspirational experiences around the globe, enabling them to make a direct contribution to scientific research.
In just 50 years we have lost over half of our wildlife and we have as little as 12 years to limit the impacts of climate change.
Our mission is to live within our means and in balance with nature. To do this we must work with governments, policymakers, businesses, communities, educators and scientists.
Ultimately we are working to reduce water pollution, enhance coastal health, increase agricultural sustainability and create thriving places to live and work.
