The SES is excited to be holding September's Explorer Talk at a new central London venue in Chelsea - the Coopers Arms.

SES Members and Friends are invited to join the SES Team for drinks in the bar from 6pm, which will be followed by a talk from SES Member, SES Explorer Award Winner and SES Trustee Dr James Borrell about Conservation Successes from the Skeleton Coast to the Serengeti on Tuesday 25th September 2018. And it goes without saying that guests are also welcome to stay for more drinks in the bar afterwards!


When James Borrell was awarded the SES Cadogan Tate Explorer Award back in 2015, the Society hoped - as with all Explorer Award winners - that they had helped a true 'Pioneer with Purpose' on their first steps to a successful career in their chosen field. What James has achieved has far exceeded those hopes; swiftly off the back of a successful expedition to Madagascar, he spent the first half of 2017 travelling 32,000kms across nine African countries in search of conservation success stories. Join us to hear those stories, and be inspired by his unfaltering optimism for conservation and the pioneering people and communities who share his passion to succeed.

VENUE: Albert Room, Coopers Arms, 87 Flood Street, Chelsea, London SW3 5TB.

TIME & DATE: 6pm on Tuesday 25th September 2018

ADMISSION IS FREE TO SES MEMBERS: Entry is FREE to SES Members and £10 to NON-SES Members! We need to keep an eye on the number of people attending to avoid exceeding capacity, so please obtain your ticket from EVENTBRITE.
