Earthwatch Volunteers

The Heirisson Prong Project ran an Earthwatch program from March 1995 to October 2002. 173 volunteers from 9 different countries assisted research scientists to carry out tasks monitoring the populations of endangered marsupials and collect data necessary for the continuing success of the project.

More details on the activities and outcomes of this Earthwatch field program are found in the Earthwatch Final Report - 2002 (pdf 720 Kb).
