WELCOME TO THE SCIENTIFIC EXPLORATION SOCIETY

ABOUT THE SOCIETY

The Scientific Exploration Society (SES) is a UK-based charity (No 267410) founded in 1969 by Colonel John Blashford-Snell OBE and his colleagues. As a non-profit making organisation, SES exists to bring together like-minded explorers and scientists and to encourage pioneering exploration and worldwide scientific expeditions focusing on scientific, conservation, education and community aid projects, particularly in under-resourced environments.

SES seeks to inspire and support - through the SES Explorer Awards - the next generation of ground breaking 'Pioneers with Purpose'. It also seeks to recognise high quality, innovative and pioneering scientific exploration through championing the aims and objectives of a number of expeditions - Championed Expeditions - annually that match the aims and objectives of the SES.

Take a look at the 'Pioneers with Purpose' who have received SES EXPLORER AWARDS.

'Pioneers with Purpose' is supported by some of the GREAT NAMES of CONTEMPORARY EXPLORATION  HAB Quotes.pdf (257 KB)
