By Manuela Guisasola Today, September 10th, we are having the worst weather since the beginning of our Earthwatch expedition.

Paul Dwyer, Western Australia What I hoped to get out of the Earthwatch expedition is to confirm my passion for sustainability issues and promoting community resilience.

With the forecast set... Continue reading
