The Scientific Exploration Society was founded in 1969 by John Blashford-Snell and colleagues to inspire leadership and innovation through scientific exploration at the frontiers of human discovery.

With over 40 years of experience of exploration and pioneering adventure, the society's most recent venture is to showcase the 'Pioneers with Purpose' of the future, and support them as they strive to inspire others through scientific research and daring journey.


Donations to the Society will help to maintain our commitment to community health and aid projects during expeditions, and to support the SES Explorer Awards and help us seek out and showcase ‘Pioneers with Purpose’ seeking to inspire others through their scientific research and daring journeys.
