Event description

Description

Join us for a special celebration of Latin American collaboration, with an illustrated presentation by Colonel John Blashford-Snell, hosted by the Scientific Exploration Society.

The evening will celebrate the many expeditions carried out in Latin America under the banner of the Society, since the epic first crossing on the Darien Gap in 1972, to the recent successful expedition in Colombia’s Amazonas region. The event will be introduced by His Excellency Néstor Osorio, the Colombian Ambassador, and an illustrated presentation will be given by the eminent explorer Colonel John Blashford-Snell, President of the Scientific Exploration Society, and Senorita Yolima Cipaguata, the Society's representative in Latin America.

There will be a Champagne reception with canapes, followed by the presentation along with a special auction in aid of the Society’s work and to help the Ticuna people of Colombia Amazonas. Bidding for the auction will open a month prior to the event to allow absentee bids.
