A Killer’s Charm

Off the coast of Iceland’s Westman Islands, a massive, black fin pierces through the waves...then a second, and a third. Fountains of seawater spray into the air. Beneath the surface, the "blackfish" call out to each other, their voices rhythmic as they sing and click a language unique to their pod. A family of killers, the wolves of the sea. 

The Anthropocene and You

How Earthwatch citizen scientists can support environmental stewardship

Human activity is now the main cause of most environmental change. These changes have been so profound that scientists suggest we have entered a new geological epoch called the Anthropocene, as we can now observe the global presence of humans in the geologic record. Though you might feel like your lifestyle is insignificant compared to things like oil extraction or vehicle emissions, the choices we make in our day-to-day life—how we get around, what we eat, how we live—play a major role in slowing climate change. 

Stress, Starvation, and Survival

White ghosts rising from the sea floor. Snow-covered skeletons. Faded rainforests under the sea. Once vibrant and thriving coral reefs are suffering, and dying off at alarming rates. The culprit of this destruction? Coral bleaching, a process caused by warming sea temperatures.
