What do you think it takes to be an explorer or adventurer?

Biologists, conservationists, educators, and explorers all share a sense of wonder about the world around them and believe that individuals can and do make a difference in the world. By holding true to their dreams and their beliefs, almost anything is possible.

What motivates people to explore the unknown and what do you think they personally gain from doing so? Tell us what you think in our Guest Book.
