The Explorer's Club is "an international multidisciplinary, professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and scientific exploration, and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore." With sections devoted to research and news, expedition assistance, programs, publications, membership, and links, this is a comprehensive site for serious travellers, explorers, and those seeking a vicarious adventure. Begun in 1904, members carry the much revered EC flag to remote points of the Earth, then return with it and contribute their experience to the club and to science. The site contains recent reports from EC expeditions to such sites as Icelandic caves, the headwaters of the Rio Timpia, Easter Island, and the "Lighthouse at the end of the world." Information on over 20 such forays is provided as is information on publications associated with the organization.
