National Geographic’s 2006 Emerging Explorers

Each year National Geographic Magazine names new explorers, scientists, and adventurers who are pushing the boundaries of science and exploration. They call this their Emerging Explorers Program, and it often helps to spotlight some amazing work being done by people that often go overlooked.

The 2006 version is now online and features some very interesting personalities. Of particular interest to me are Bobby Model, and adventure photographer, Dr. Losang Rabgey who specialize in Tibetan studies, an area of the world I find fascinating, and Mark Lynas, a journalist and author.

Each of these explorers will have an indepth profile and media section in the coming days, but for now, information is still being added. You can also see the 2004 and 2005 Emerging Explorers, which include some interesting personalities as well.
