Slots that are already full have waiting lists. You can go on one of these waiting lists by simply sending us an e-mail with your contact details and details of dates you would like to go on the waiting list for. If a place becomes available, we will go through the waiting list in the order that requests came in.
Expeditions run on the published dates only, usually only once a year. Expedition dates are published around 11 months in advance. As one expedition finishes, the dates for next year are published. Dates usually stay the same year-on-year, so if the expedition you are interested in runs in September one year, it is very likely to run on very similar dates again the year after. If you would like to be notified of dates as they come up, please just let us know.
Full status explanation - red / amber / green
Green: Expeditions of status green have spaces available.
Amber: Expeditions of status amber have few spaces available (or are currently in the field). To join them you need to decide soon.
Red: Expeditions of status red have no spaces available (or have already been to the field). If an expedition is full already, you have the option of going on a waiting list.
Match-funding: Many employers, particularly in the USA and Canada, but also elsewhere, will match fund charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees and employees’ spouses. In Biosphere Expeditions' case this means that your employer may match fund your expedition contribution payments and other donations you make to Biosphere Expeditions. Some employers also provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. > more
Personal taxation: Depending on the participant’s country of origin, a portion of your expedition contribution as well as additional personal funds needed around the expedition (such as food, lodging and transportation) may be tax-deductible. > more
