A NEW SES Championed Expedition

In 2017, the Society sought to recognise and support high quality, innovative and pioneering scientific exploration by developing a means of giving ‘non-financial support’ to those leading expeditions, which match the aims and objectives of the SES. This activity is called Championing the Aims and Objectives of an Expedition (SES Championed Expeditions). The Society approved two expeditions in 2017 to be SES Championed Expeditions: 

- Peter Kohler - The Plastic Tide; and
- Colonel John Blashford-Snell - Kenya Quest 2018.

We are delighted to announce a new addition to the list - an expedition being run by SES Member James Dyer called Into the depths of the Amazon 2018.

WHERE: Manu National Park, Peru
WHEN: Tuesday 8th May to Wednesday 23rd May 2018
WHAT: Field-based research and monitoring deep in the southern Peruvian Amazon
WHO: Facilitated by SES Member James Dyer (James Dyer Expeditions)
COST: £2,200 + flights to Cusco (approx £700-£900)
