For over 100 years, one of our core mottos has been to promote scientific exploration "By All Means Possible".
Every year we contribute to our Exploration Fund with proceeds from The Explorers Club Annual Dinner, which for decades has supported doctoral and postdoctoral researchers. With the unprecedented cancellation of ECAD this past year, funding is now no longer available.
On behalf of the next generation of explorers, we have created a special, very limited edition “By All Means Possible” Challenge Coin. Only 100 coins, each individually numbered, will ever be made. All proceeds will go to supporting the most promising young explorers worldwide.
In this trying year, our goal is to continue to support these young explorers, and specifically local, indigenous, and in-country exploration that can be done within the constraints of the ongoing pandemic. With this support you will truly be advancing our mission by all means possible.
Pictured above are some of our most promising young explorers and grant recipients: Matana Levi, Jackie Tleimat, Dylan Davis, Elena Robakiewicz, Karina Zyatitisky, Maciej Grzelczyk, Nat Knowles, and Hannah Rempell. With funding from The Explorers Club, these young explorers and grant recipients have studied a wide range of exciting scientific topics, from giraffe foraging ecology in Tanzania's Tarangire Manyara Ecosystem to supraglacial rock research at the Matanuska Glacier in Alaska.
In this year of persistence and overcoming the odds, this motto is more relevant than ever. Please share your #byallmeanspossible stories of expeditions past. Give it as a gift, hand it to your team members on expedition, or proudly display it as a reminder to yourself: never stop exploring.
Each coin is individually numbered, 001-100. Coin numbers will be assigned and shipped chronologically, in accordance with the time your order is received. Please place your order soon to ensure a lower coin number. Coin 001 has been reserved; 002-009 are priced at $250, and 010-100 are priced at $100.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for shipment, with free shipping for domestic orders.
