Operation Wallacea is a biodiversity and climate research organisation. For 25 years it has run biodiversity field expeditions to support the research of hundreds of academics and funded from tuition fees paid by students that then gain experience of working with publishing scientists. Opwall is at centre of a small network of organisations. The conservation projects are often run through the Wallacea Trust, whilst Wildlife Experience tours at the Opwall research sites and outside the main Opwall research season are run by a sister organisation – Friends of Wallacea . Expeditions in the marine field include projects such as a coral reef conservation in Madagascar, and coral reef and turtle conservation in Mexico.
