Operation Wallacea (Opwall) is a biodiversity research organisation fuelled by volunteers who join international expeditions, local field courses, and online internships for the opportunity to work on real-world research programmes alongside academic researchers. Opwall carries out long-term biodiversity monitoring which allows us to build up datasets that can be analysed to spot trends and changes in the populations and diversity of wildlife. These data are then analysed by scientists, written up as scientific papers, and published in peer-reviewed journals. This gives our sister charity, the Wallacea Trust, the leverage and evidence to apply for funding and lobby governments to put in place wildlife conservation management strategies to protect the biodiversity in the areas we work in.
