ACADEMY OF SCIENCE

Since 1856 the Academy of Science in St. Louis has been a leader in the advancement and integration of science and technology into contemporary society. From its rich history as a science museum to the realization of a longstanding goal by taking the lead in the development of a “well-equipped and suitable science center” for St. Louis, the Academy has always been able to focus its resources for maximum return. Today, Academy resources are focused on expanded scientific outreach, education, resource sharing, and the recognition of scientific accomplishment.

ENDANGERED WOLF CENTER

The Endangered Wolf Center (formerly The Wild Canid and Research Center), was founded in 1971 by two Explorers Club members. Dr. Marlin Perkins and his wife Carol. Carol was the third Chairman of our Chapter, and Marlin was awarded the Sweeney Medal in the late 1970’s.  As a result of their efforts and those of Center staff, USFWS, and other conservation partners, Mexican Gray and red Wolves are living again in the wild after near extinction.

INTERNATIONAL ANTI-POACHING FOUNDATIONS
iapf.org

Anti-poaching rangers form the first and last line of defence for nature. Without the right training, equipment, management and support they cannot defend the World’s natural heritage for future generations.

The IAPF fulfills this niche responsibility within its areas of operations, whilst working alongside credible partners who specialise in the other vital components of conserving protected area biodiversity. The requirement for inspiring urgent political action towards the safekeeping of the planet cannot be overstated.

This responsibility should transcend all levels of industry, business and society as we strive for a generation of people that give, not take. Increasing pressure on the world’s natural assets is simply not sustainable.

LEWIS & CLARK TRAIL HERITAGE FOUNDATION
lewisandclark.org

The Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation (LCTHF), Inc. was created to stimulate public appreciation of the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s contributions to America’s heritage and to support education, research, development and preservation of the Lewis and Clark experience. The Foundation serves as advocate, interpreter and protector of the trail.

For more than 40 years, the Foundation and its chapters across the country have promoted Lewis and Clark scholarship, developed educational programs and encouraged the telling of all the stories of the Expedition, including the tribes they met.

The Foundation works with dozens of organizations and agencies (government, nonprofit and private) to preserve and protect the Trail. Established in 1969, the Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), corporation.
