Quotes

"Earthwatch expeditions are unique; they allow our employees to build their knowledge in the STEM arena and, when they return to their home countries, they do so as environmental science ambassadors for the Company and in their communities" said Esra Ozer , President, Alcoa Foundation
The Director General of the Volvo Ocean Race, Knut Frostad, said: "We have a route which all sailors will enjoy. We are starting in Alicante, where the headquarters of the race are based, along with our museum, which is the first museum of this kind in the world."
"A course like this is important because we are going into extreme conditions," said Team SCA member Abby Eahler. "If a disaster strikes it is never going to be in daylight or sunny and flat conditions, so there is no point training for that."
