ABOUT THE SOCIETY
The Scientific Exploration Society is a UK-based charity (Reg No 267410) founded in 1969 by Colonel John Blashford-Snell OBE and his colleagues. As a non-profit making organisation we initiate a worldwide programme of scientific expeditions focusing on scientific, conservation, education and community aid projects.
Today, the focus of the SES is on delivering outstanding events and experiences to our membership, plus inspiring and supporting - through the SES Explorer Awards - the next generation of ground breaking 'Pioneers with Purpose'.
If you would like to help us continue the Society's work, please click here to donate.
As a member you can become involved in supporting fascinating projects around the world, and even join us on one of our worthwhile expeditions to the most remote corners of the globe. You will also receive regular updates and invitations to our inspirational talks. For more information click here.
