EarthWatch Institute is an international non-profit organization. It allows people to participate closely in activities that are focussed on understanding and studying issues that concern the Earth’s future. Volunteers can join research teams around the world and spend time assisting scientists in field research activities. This privledge is not free. For every program around the world, there is a cost attached for participation where you are responsible for reaching a starting location. While it seems somewhat out of the ordinary to pay to volunteer, it is easy to understand that visiting any place has a cost attached to it. Boarding and lodging of various levels are offered depending on the requirements of each program. Participating in one of these trips is sure to be an engaging experience and could be a welcome opportunity to many who are tired of the same old guided tour experience.
