The Experts Program was created to encourage the flow of ideas between TREK OPS and field experts. Experts provide us with expert consultation on TREK OPS projects, research and outreach, and adventures and expeditions. They represent a variety of professions and work with the program for a specific amount of time.

Experts are those individuals who have contributed in specific terms to the cause of their discipline and who share a sustained interest in some field of scientific exploration and the furtherance of scientific knowledge of the world.

Active participation in field expeditions sponsored by a recognized scientific organization, university or museum will be given serious consideration, even if the results are part of an ongoing study.
