Natural History Expeditions

Alaska Endeavour is a nonprofit organization, supporting science, education, conservation, and preservation.  We host natural history expeditions in Alaska on our research vessel, Endeavour, for high school, college, and professional researchers.


  • For high school students, we take groups of six (and a teacher) from the same school to a remote wilderness location for a 12-day benchmark study, after which the students write and publish a professional paper. The scientific community and conservation organizations get the data, and the students get an author credit.

  • For college students, we partner with a research scientist and the Institute for Field Research to take six students from various schools out for research in that scientist's specialty (after a week-long, online course). The students earn college credit for their work.

  • For professional researchers -- archeologists, paleontologists, biologists, geologists, ornithologists, anthropologists, botanists, glaciologists, artists, film crews, historians, and others -- we take them to do their work anywhere in maritime Akaska, from Southeast to the Arctic.


As a nonprofit, our high school and college student expeditions are made possible only with financial support from people like you. To see how you can help, see Support.
