Founded in New York City in 1904, The Explorers Club promotes the scientific exploration of land, sea, air, and space by supporting research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences. The Club’s members have been responsible for an illustrious series of famous firsts: First to the North Pole, first to the South Pole, first to the summit of Mt Everest, first to the deepest point in the ocean, first to the surface of the moon—all accomplished by our members.
A.N.Z.E.C. is the unincorporated, non-profit official Australian & New Zealand chapter of The Explorers Club.
