About Operation Wallacea

  • We’ve been running award winning biodiversity research expeditions for the last 28 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 projects that inform conservation management strategies and save species at risk of extinction.

    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.

  • Our conservation volunteer’s work has:

    • Described 72 species that are new to science

    • Been published in nearly 650 academic papers in peer-review journals

    • Been used to lobby governments to create 6 Protected Areas and National Parks all over the world

    • Supported communities to establish income streams that work in harmony with the environment
