About Operation Wallacea

  • We’ve been running award winning biodiversity research expeditions for the last 25 years, helping volunteers around the world gain valuable experience and get their hands dirty with real biodiversity research.

    From tropical rainforests and European grasslands, to coral reefs and Mediterranean seagrass meadows, our network of over 200 researchers lead cutting edge research projects that inform conservation management strategies and save species at risk of extinction.

    • Contribute to cutting edge research

    • Work alongside and learn from conservationists in the field

    • Professional fundraising support available

    By working alongside and helping our researchers, volunteers gain experience as research assistants. University students can also gather data for their independent research projects or thesis.
