Water is essential to life on Earth and it's up to us to protect it
More than 9,000 Earthwatchers have collected water samples from over 3,000 ecosystems worldwide.
Developed in collaboration with leading research institutes and partners, our platforms allow water data to be shared with others.
During Water Blitz events, volunteers collect as many water samples as they can in 24 hours, providing a snapshot of water health on that day.
Help protect your local pond, river or stream. Join thousands of people around the world investigating the health of freshwater ecosystems on a scale never seen before. Read more
