Our minds are programmed to respond to color. The subliminal messages we get from color shape our thoughts. As humans our very survival is hung on the identification of color.
Citron and Clarence Truesdalethen superintendent of Vermont public schools. Rosborough joined Educational Expeditions International as a volunteer and six months later became full-time president of the newly named Earthwatch. Sincethe worldwide organization has recruited more thanvolunteers who have joined scientists in the field as research assistants, and between them have contributed more than 11 million hours of their time to front-line environmental research all over the world.
Earthwatch supports more than 50 vital research expeditions in nearly 40 counties.
Research areas[ edit ] Earthwatch volunteers partner with leading scientists in the field to conduct valuable research across four vital areas: Climate Change - Climate change poses one of the greatest challenges to the planet.
Earthwatch supports research that improves the understanding of how climate change is affecting different environments, and they find ways to help communities reduce their impacts and adapt to changes.
These research programs unearth the past in a way that safeguards the future. The goal of this research is to create conservation plans and help protect our planet and its inhabitants in today's ever-evolving landscape.
Ocean Health - This research seeks to protect marine biodiversity with a focus on those parts of the ocean most quickly impacted by society, such as the highly threatened coastal habitats including mangroves and coral reefs. Earthwatch Expeditions[ edit ] Current research expeditions being fielded by Earthwatch scientists and volunteers from around the world: Amazon Riverboat Exploration - Advancing strategies for community-based wildlife management and conservation in rural areas of Loreto, Peru that facilitate sustainable hunting for local communities, and ensure that nationally protected areas and conservation concessions work with local people and not against them.
Animals of Malawi in the Majete Wildlife Reserve - How can we best help African wildlife return to and thrive in their native habitat?
Blazing the Biodiversity Trail in Brazil - What can scientists learn about conservation and biodiversity by observing the movements of wildlife in Brazil? Help find out by examining pollinators and the crops that need them.
Carnivores of Madagascar - A conservation and development program to secure survival of endemic carnivores, their prey, and habitat in and around Ankarafantsika National ParkMadagascar, focusing on the fossa Cryptoprocta ferox.
Climate change and caterpillars - Over half of all described organisms in the world are involved in plant-insect- parasitoid interactions, yet basic ecological assumptions about diversity of these interactions still lack quantitative tests. This project addresses how climate change and extreme weather events disrupt tritrophic interaction diversity, leading to herbivore outbreaks, and disruption of interaction diversity causes unstable ecosystems and diminishes ecosystems services.
Climate change at the Arctic 's edge - The project seeks to quantify the consequences of climate-induced environmental change, it will determine the status of treeline and permafrost in the study areas and the main processes affecting them.
Climate Change in the Mackenzie Mountains - Scientists expect to see the greatest effects of global warming in the Arctic. What, exactly, will these effects be? Investigating the effect in the UK of fragmentation and management history on response of temperate forest to climate.
Conserving Leopards and Monkeys in South Africa - Help gather critical information to protect leopards and monkeys under threat in South Africa. Coral Communities in the Seychelles - Despite being recognised as one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in the world with huge economic value, reefs are threatened by both anthropogenic and natural phenomena.
Costa Rican Sea Turtles - Understanding the behaviour of leatherback turtle Dermochelys coriacea and the impacts of human activities on these turtles on the beaches of the Pacific coast.
Encountering the Prehistoric People of New Mexico - Join pioneering excavations of prehistoric quarries in the Valles Caldera and discover how humans interacted with this volcanic landscape 10, years ago.
Excavating the Roman Empire in Britain - Excavation of a previously unknown Romano-British site of significant importance discovered in Devon. Research on this site will contribute to the understanding of life in the Romano-British world.
Exploring an Active Volcano in Nicaragua - How does an active volcano shape the world around it? Peer into the crater of the Masaya Volcano to find out.
Exploring Boston's Urban Forest - Cities are made up of buildings and streets — but between and among human structures are thousands of trees that make up the urban forest. Exploring Lions and their Prey in Kenya - Can inventive livestock management bring balance between lions, other predators, and prey back to the Kenyan savanna?
Investigating Threats to Chimps in Uganda - Explore interactions between people and chimpanzees and other primates in the rainforest of Uganda to improve human—primate relationships.Red Bull: Designer Unknown Red Bull gets a double dose of red in its logo and is a great color choice for a logo that represents an energy drink company.
The company markets the drink as, “Red Bull vitalizes body and mind” and “Red Bull gives you wiiings!”.
