Challenge Yourself for Charity

Get active for conservation – choose your charity challenge here.

We work with specialist partners to provide access to a number of exciting, supported real world fund-raising activities here in the UK and beyond,  suitable for a range of abilities. Any individual raising £250 or more receives a complimentary one year online membership to our Explorer Club as a thank you. All funds raised support our project partners – find out more here.

Whether you’re running 10km or climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, reaching your goal can be more rewarding if you’re part of a team, so consider recruiting some friends.

Expedition Archive

Explorers Against Extinction charity expeditions recreate the journeys of explorers and adventurers. All profit from these trips, as well as fund-raising by the participants supports Explorers Against Extinction projects.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 our 2020/21 expedition programme has been postponed. Details for 2022 will be unveiled once international travel becomes possible once more.


Expedition: Everest Base Camp 1953 

Dates: 27th February – 14th March 2020

Guides: Serap Sherpa, 7 time submitter of Everest. Robert Ferguson, author of the Nepal Handbook from Footprint Guides & EAE Trustee.

Details: In February – March 2020 EAE trustee Robert Ferguson trekked to Everest Base Camp, following the route taken by the 1953 British Everest Expedition that successfully reached the summit. This  entailed walking from the Kathmandu Valley to Everest, a journey of some 200 miles through some of the most spectacular terrain in the world. Every step was ascent or descent. He completed the trek using only equipment available at the time.

Rob was joined at Lukla by a group of supporters all of whom  fund-raised for EAE. They continued up to the Khumbu Ice-flow and Everest Base Camp.
