About, Bylaws, Other Information

In November 2009 Polar explorer Eric Larsen will begin the Save the Poles Expedition a first-ever journey to the North Pole, South Pole and summit of Mt. Everest in a continuous 365-day period. His purpose? To travel to the "front lines" of global warming to document the changes occurring in these last great frozen places.

"This expedition will tell the story of these remote places so we can better understand how our actions affect the poles and ultimately the planet," Larsen says. "We all need to be reminded that we must act now to stop global warming."
