Earthwatch is amazing! I have been on 8 expeditions and each one was different in respect to accommodations and so forth, but they were all successful in that I learned from hands-on experience. I came back enriched and proud to be part of the team experience offered by this organization. I have traveled from Iceland to Washington State and have the most fond and vivid memories of each experience. We can all take a vacation but Earthwatch satisfies something inside of me that makes me proud to know I have contributed to a larger cause. Linda Johnson Banks

I will never forget staying at the incredible Tambopata Research Center (2004) near the world famous clay lick .
At the clay lick just before dawn you think you are somewhere in heaven as you wait for the dawn to come and then you start to hear them coming ...until there are literally 100s flying around the clay lick …and then all at once the bravest of them fly down to the clay lick ....and it is then after that first one flys down … that they all begin flying down …….and you watch in tears .......as the "dance" begins!

I've been on a handful of Safaris in east Africa and my trip with Ian and Kawira was by far the best. The guides were super accommodating and had great stories to tell. Couldn't have chosen a better way to see the gorillas in Rwanda and would recommend Ian and his crew to anyone!
