Waiting list

Slots that are already full have waiting lists. You can go on this waiting list by simply sending us an e-mail with your contact details and details on 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. 

Status

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.

Funding

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.

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.
