Down To The Wire

Nai'aPreparations for the Niku VIII expedition are at a full gallop. Read the Land Team Briefing HERE.

HOWEVER, due to recent unforeseeable increases in airline and ROV costs, we will need to raise another $60,000 to give the expedition the full capability to conduct a thorough search of the areas we've targeted.

This expedition may be our last opportunity to find whatever more there is to find. It is extremely important that you contribute what you can. Please click here to donate today.
