Just to give you a background into who Earthwatch are and what they do. They are an environmental not for profit that work alongside todays leading scientists to help them in their scientific research that is aimed at conservation, in a whole range of ecosystems, wildlife, oceans and even cultural.

They help the scientists by not only providing funds for their research but also finding people, like you, to get involved to help with the field work to have their job done quicker while also helping to educate the wider public on current issues. You don't need any skills or training as everything you need to know you will be taught on the day.

Melbourne's Microbats. On this expedition you will spend the night researching Melbourne's elusive microbat in an overnight eco-adventure inside the Royal Melbourne Botanic Gardens. You will be setting up harp traps to catch these fascinating creatures and record information regarding species, gender and age. The data is used to understand how urbanisation is impacting Melbourne's microbat population and will help to improve the planning and development of our city.
