Some of our projects rely heavily on sponsors. The original Earthrace record voyage (in the above video) for example was largely funded by corporate sponsorship, much of it in the form of goods and services. EARTHRACE-2 will also rely heavily on sponsors (more).
Donations Donations play a key role in our work. The recent Amazon campaign targeting the illegal pet trade for example was over 50% funded by donations. Such campaigns are difficult to solicit directly for funds, so we rely on general donations. Payments are tax deductible in USA and New Zealand (more).
The backbone of Earthrace is our Tribe who get first option on Volunteering. If you’d like to come on a future campaign, then join our tribe, support us, and be ready for the adventure of a lifetime (more).
Campaigns rely heavily on Volunteers drawn from our Tribe Members. Campaigns may have anything from 2-25 volunteers, and come from a range of backgrounds, nationalities and occupations (more).
We often work with govt teams that provide legitimacy of operations, especially on fisheries enforcement or wildlife smuggling campaigns. Video above from joint fisheries campaign in Philippines. (more).
