$20,000 By February 1

On January 2nd we launched the $20,000 by February 1st  Campaign.  That’s the amount we need to raise to keep fundraising and preparations for the Niku IX Lagoon Search on track for the expedition’s scheduled departure on June 21. February 1st is, the deadline for finalizing the scope and methodology for operations in the lagoon.

One week later, we’ve raised $7,885, that’s 39% of the goal in 23% of the time.  A big THANK YOU to everyone who has helped. It’s great progress but we need to maintain the momentum.  Whatever you can contribute moves the needle.

The Engine is Gone

A Digital Globe satellite image taken on November 15, 2016 reveals that the 140 ton steam engine of SS Norwich City has finally been claimed by the sea. A new Research Bulletin, The Long Farewell of the Norwich City, traces the breakdown of the shipwreck with a gallery of historical photos, pictures taken during TIGHAR Expeditions, and satellite imagery. The ship’s deterioration over the years provides a model for what happens to a man-made structure exposed to the elements on that reef.
