ClimateWatch is a citizen science initiative by Earthwatch Australia focusing on outdoor experiential learning, where people of all ages can discover their local environment, learn about plant and animal species around them while also collecting critical scientific information about how their seasonal behaviour and patterns are being affected by climate change. You can use ClimateWatch in your teaching or learning, or even just on your own in your backyard. Find out more at

By booking your school group onto an Earthwatch research expedition you will give them the opportunity to explore nature in new and unexpected ways, contribute to field research and return home knowing that their efforts have helped to protect our shared planet and the many species that call it home. Your school can choose between more than 50 expeditions around the world, including observing humpback whales off the Queensland coast, investigating the impacts of climate change on the wildlife of Australia's rainforests and researching the vital ecosystems of the Murray-Darling Basin.

Earthwatch expeditions are suitable for students aged 15 years and older.
