Call for Proposals on
Marine Biology, Ecology and Ichthyology

Earthwatch Institute is a non-profit institution that sponsors scholarly
field research in the biological, physical, social and cultural
sciences.  To date, Earthwatch has supported over 1,000 research
projects in 118 countries with $40 million in research grants and over
50,000 volunteer field assistants.  The volunteers are well-educated and
highly motivated individuals who are recruited, screened and trained to
meet scientists’ needs.  The Center for Field Research is the affiliate
organisation of Earthwatch Institute that develops and recommends
programs for Earthwatch support.  The Center is now accepting proposals
for field work in the areas of marine biology, marine ecology and

Scientists, resource managers and others involved in research in the
marine sciences are eligible to apply as individuals or as teams.
Project Managers or Principal Investigators must oversee all field work
through the production of project reports and policy recommendations.
Professionals from any nationality, for work in any regional area, are
eligible to apply.

Field-based projects which address a broad range of questions and issues
in marine biology, marine ecology and ichthyology, are encouraged, e.g.:

•        Studies of threatened marine ecosystems (e.g. salt marshes,
coral reefs, mangroves, estuaries)
•        Projects that assess the impacts of human activities on marine
and freshwater flora and fauna
•        Investigations of the behavioral ecology or population biology
of selected aquatic species
•        Basic research in marine biology, marine ecology, marine
benthic ecology and ichthyology
•        Projects that test innovative approaches to marine and
freshwater aquaculture

Grants range from $10,000 to $50,000 depending on project length and
number of volunteer participants involved.  Typical projects might
employ 4 to 8 volunteers, from different professions on 3 to 6
sequential teams over several months.  Project teams normally spend 7 to
15 days in the field as most participants are on leave from their
professional organisations.  Preliminary proposals should be submitted
at least one year in advance of anticipated field dates and will be
responded to within 30 days.  Full proposals, if invited, will be peer
