Public Lecture Series with Ryan Pyle

Chinese Turkestan


Sparsely populated and spanning more than 1.6 million square kilometers of desert, river basins, mountains, and grasslands, the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region has had a turbulent history. Many of the events that have occurred there during the last 2500 years have been inextricably associated with its geographical position in northwest China, at a crossroads linking Europe and Asia. Traversed by branches of the series of trade routes that formed the ancient Silk Road, the region has been fought over and controlled by a succession of warlords and empires. Join Ryan as he spends nearly a decade exploring AND documenting the ancient footsteps in shifting sands in China’s remote northwest. His photography book, titled Chinese Turkestan was published in 2014.



Born in Toronto, Canada, Ryan Pyle spent his early years close to home. After obtaining a degree in International Politics from the University of Toronto in 2001, Ryan realized a life long dream and traveled to China on an exploratory mission. In 2002 Ryan moved to China permanently and in 2004 Ryan became a regular contributor to The New York Times. In 2009 Ryan was listed by PDN Magazine as one of the 30 emerging photographers in the world. In 2010 Ryan began working full time on television and documentary film production and has produced and presented several large multi-episode television series for major broadcasters in the USA, Canada, UK, Asia, China, and continental Europe.

Presidential Dinner with John Lukas of the Okapi Conservation Project

The Okapi Conservation Project

For 30 years the Okapi Conservation Project (OCP) has worked to protect the natural habitat of the endangered okapi and home of the indigenous Mbuti pygmies living in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve. OCP focuses on developing an economic and educational foundation on which the Okapi Wildlife Reserve can operate. This is achieved through programs in wildlife protection, conservation education, sustainable agriculture, and community assistance.

OCP objectives:

  • •   Support and assist the efforts of the Congolese government to protect, manage, and secure the Okapi Wildlife Reserve.

  • •   Develop and implement education programs that promote local understanding of, and appreciation for, okapi, their habitat, and the importance of the Okapi Wildlife Reserve.

  • •   Invest in capacity building of Congolese staff, ICCN guards, and communities around the Reserve to support the goal of steadfast stewardship of okapi conservation.

  • •   Assist local communities with developing sustainable ways to coexist with endangered wildlife, while still addressing their own aspirational needs.

The Okapi Conservation Project, based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) works to conserve the okapi living in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve. The Okapi Wildlife Reserve is a 13,700-sq. km. area occupying one-fifth of the Ituri Forest located in northeastern DRC; is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of most bio-diverse sites in all of Africa and home to the largest populations of forest elephants, okapi and chimpanzees in DRC. Protecting the forest also allows a unique human culture to thrive, as the Reserve is also the home of indigenous Mbuti pygmies who have lived in the Ituri Forest for over 40,000 years.

The okapi (Okapia johnstoni), sometimes referred to as the “forest giraffe “has only been known to the western world only since 1901. The okapi is endemic to the Democratic Republic of Congo and has been protected since 1933. Okapi were recently re-classified by IUCN and listed as “Endangered” on the Red List due to significant downward population trends over the last 15 years. The Okapi is a fully protected species under Congolese law and the species is the national symbol of conservation, appearing on the insignia of the Institute in Congo for the Conservation of Nature (ICCN).


Mr. Lukas graduated from St. Anselm’s College in 1971and received his Master’s Degree in vertebrate zoology from Northeastern University’s Graduate School of Biology in 1973. For 6 years, John was the resident curator for the New York Zoological Society’s Rare Animal Survival Center on St. Catherine’s Island, Georgia. After getting to know paper magnate Howard Gilman during a safari to Africa in 1980, he became White Oak Plantation’s first director of conservation in 1982. For 30 years John led the development of White Oak Conservation Center into a base of conservation efforts for threatened and endangered species that are part of breeding, research, training and re-introduction programs involving biologists, researchers and students from around the world.

John’s holistic approach to wildlife conservation is espoused by his involvement in field conservation programs around the world. He is president and founder of the Okapi Conservation Project in the rainforest of the Democratic Republic of Congo which since 1987 works to protect the wild population of okapi through the support of wildlife rangers and assisting local communities to become better stewards of their natural resources. John serves as a member of the IUCN SSC Giraffe and Okapi Specialist Group. He is a founding member and the president of the International Rhino Foundation, which operates and funds in situ protection and research studies for all five species of rhinos. He is also a founding board member and vice-president of the Wildlife Conservation Network, which provides operating funds and technical support for entrepreneurial conservationists working with communities to conserve wildlife and habitat. John is a director of the Tusk Trust, an organization based in the US and UK that provides support to conservation projects in Africa. He serves on the Advisory Board of the Anna Mertz Rhino Trust which funds on the ground protection of rhinos in Africa and Asia. John is an advisor to the Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education Center which is rehabilitating orphaned endangered Grauer’s gorillas in DR Congo. He is chairman of the board of the South East Zoo Alliance for Conservation and Research. John serves on the Advisory Board of the Conservation Centers for Species Survival.

John is currently based at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens and is working on developing new alliances for the benefit of wildlife and wild places. The zoo is supporting John’s involvement in managing and fundraising for the Okapi Conservation Project in DR Congo and his leadership roles with the International Rhino Foundation and the Wildlife Conservation Network.

Public Lecture Series with David Thoreson

OVER THE HORIZON: Exploring the Edges of a Changing Planet

David Thoreson FN ’16 will share stories of adventure as the first American to sail the Arctic’s Northwest Passage in both directions, including an eye-witness account of the climate change impacts to sensitive Arctic and ocean environments. His presentation includes visual stories of three Arctic expeditions aboard small sailboats. It stitches these voyages together with history, photography, trip planning, satellite data, wildlife, native villages, and changes in the environment which have contributed to loss of Arctic ice.

Thoreson seems to have been on adventures most of his life, whether bicycling around the United States, Canada and New Zealand or exploring the oceans and polar regions of the world. In 2007, David and the crew of Cloud Nine became the first American sailors in history to transit the Northwest Passage from the east to the west. In 2009, sailing aboard the scientifically-equipped, Ocean Watch, David became the only American sailor to ever navigate the Northwest Passage in both directions. In June of 2010, David completed the 28,000-mile circumnavigation by sail of the North and South American continents on the 64-foot Ocean Watch.

David's work has appeared across a broad spectrum of media from the National Park Service and Smithsonian to the Wall Street Journal and PBS.

With his unique education and experiences, David is speaking and presenting publicly about modern exploration and major environmental issues, such as climate change, ocean acidification, plastics in the ocean, arctic ice loss, energy and resource development. David has built dynamic presentations, exhibits and documentary films utilizing his adventures to bring these important issues into context.

Asia Society "Secrets of the Sea" Exhibit - Explorers Club Field Trip

Members and their guests are invited to private tour of the latest exhibit at the Asia Society, Secrets of the Sea: A Tang Shipwreck and Early Trade in Asia, with Adriana Proser, Ph.D., the John H. Foster Senior Curator for Traditional Asian Art.

In 1998, Indonesian fishermen diving for sea cucumbers discovered a shipwreck off Belitung Island in the Java Sea. The ship was a West Asian vessel constructed from planks sewn together with rope — and its remarkable cargo originally included around 70,000 ceramics produced in China, as well as luxurious objects of gold and silver. The discovery of the shipwreck and its cargo confirmed what some previously had only suspected: overland routes were not the only frequently exploited trade connections between East and West in the ninth century. Whether the vessel sank because of a storm or other factors as it traversed the heart of the global trading network remains unknown. Bound for present-day Iran and Iraq, it is the earliest ship found in Southeast Asia thus far and provides proof of active maritime trade in the ninth century among China, Southeast Asia, and West Asia.

In the past the common historical narrative described major global maritime networks connecting Asia to the rest of the world first emerging in the fifteenth century as western explorers and adventurers asserted a role in the region. With the discovery of the shipwreck near Belitung we now know that important, complex, and dynamic networks of maritime trade already connected disparate cultures across the globe as early as the ninth century.

Don't miss this unique look at early exploration, seafaring techniques, and 9th century wayfinding that linked Tang China with the Abbasid Caliphate.

Date: Tuesday, May 23

Time: 4:45 pm sharp in the Asia Society Lobby

Public Lecture Series with Rachel Hogan

Saving Gorillas - Fifteen Years in the African Rainforest

Rachel Hogan anticipated African adventures when she packed her bags and left her Birmingham, UK home in 2001 at the age of 25. She wouldn’t have believed, however, that 15 years later she would call a small patch of jungle in Cameroon home, and more than 350 primates and over 50 staff her family.

No sooner had Rachel begun a three-month volunteership at the fledgling primate sanctuary Ape Action Africa (formerly the Cameroon Wildlife Aid Fund), than a days-old orphaned gorilla was placed in her care. She named him Nkan Daniel. For a time she was the only volunteer on site, sharing a tent in the forest with her charge. Water – even for drinking – came from the river, 30 minutes away. When the founder/director abruptly abandoned the project, Rachel stayed.

She had made a promise to the infant gorilla that she would not leave until she had provided a proper forest home and gorilla family for him and the other ape orphans who’d made their way to the sanctuary. And Rachel Hogan doesn’t break her vows. After returning to the UK for 2 weeks to settle her affairs, she made her permanent move to that Cameroonian sanctuary.

The shy, quiet girl from Birmingham is now director of Ape Action Africa, one of the largest and most established ape sanctuaries on the continent, with 23 gorillas, 110 chimpanzees and a dozen species of monkeys. Safeguarding them and building the infrastructure to ensure that has been her primary mission.

Rachel’s extraordinary combination of diplomacy, resilience, creative solutions and long-term commitment have earned the trust and respect of government, law enforcement, local communities and the staff. Her ability to remain calm in the face of inevitable and unpredictable events is indispensable.

Her promise to Nkan Daniel fulfilled and a well-run operation in place, the greater responsibility to the primates now is to keep their cousins free and in the wild, where they belong. Rachel is equipped to steer Ape Action Africa towards this long vision, one which requires unwavering resolve and a multi-faceted strategy. She promised to protect the primates in her care, and Rachel never breaks her vow.

Ernest Shackleton Loves Me - Explorers Club Field Trip

Members of The Explorers Club are organizing a group field trip to view the off-Broadway hit musical Ernest Shackleton Loves Me, on Thursday evening, May 18.

The creative team behind the musical were kind enough to join us at Headquarters on Friday evening, April 7, and provided guests a sneak peak of music from the show with cuisine from the expedition. As a result, there has been a ground swell to follow-up and see the work on stage!

Ernest Shackleton Loves Me is a wildly inventive musical adventure that tells the story of a sleep-deprived single mom who struggles to balance her family and career as a video game music composer. Late one night, while posting a dating video, she receives an unexpected response from the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922), one of the most iconic leaders of the 20th century. Shipwrecked and stranded on an iceberg in the Antarctic, Shackleton reaches across space and time to share his heroic journey with her. Against all odds, they discover that their greatest inspiration lies within each other.

Date: Thursday, May 18

Reservation Notes:

Tickets are available via The Explorers Club, as the Club has pre-arranged a block of seats.

Tickets are $55 each, and the show begins at 8:00 pm. Please contact us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call us at 212.628.8383 for booking and information.

Public Lecture Series with Daryl Hawk

Into the Heart of Cuba

International documentary photographer, Daryl Hawk, will present his latest photo documentary and lecture entitled “Into the Heart of Cuba”. In April of 2016 Mr. Hawk embarked on a long 2700 mile circumnavigation of the entire country of Cuba.

Hawk started his journey in the capital of Havana where the day to day street life and architecture was his main focus. He then made his way to the rural Vinales region which is world renowned for tobacco plantations. From there he continued to head east through the cities of Cinfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara, Camaguay, Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa as well as many villages in between. The stunning architecture, colorful cars from the 1950s, remote caves, environmental portraits of people from all walks of life, and dramatic landscapes are all covered in the presentation.

Mr. Hawk was in Cuba to shoot a documentary, and will share his nonstop, day-to-day adventures, experiences, discoveries, and valuable lessons learned on an incredibly spiritual journey. He will discuss his style, philosophy, and various techniques used when photographing subject matter. Equipment, lighting on location, environmental portraits, and travel tips on planning a trip to Cuba will all be covered.

For the past thirty years, Daryl Hawk has explored some of the most remote and isolated places in the world telling stories with his camera. He is a photographer, travel writer, lecturer, and explorer whose articles and photographs often appear in numerous national magazines and publications worldwide. He is a member of the Explorers Club, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and member of the Professional Photographers Association. He has been featured several times on NBC’s “Today Show” and Fox 5 television.

He is also the former host and producer of the television show “The Unconventional Traveler” which featured some of the worlds’ leading explorers, travel photographers and filmmakers sharing their work from various expeditions and documentaries.
