How TIGHAR Found Amelia Earhart

Many have tried, but only TIGHAR has found genuine evidence of Amelia Earhart’s fate. This short video hits the high points — and the low — of more than thirty years of scientific investigation made possible by the enthusiasm, expertise, sacrifice, and support of TIGHAR members. The evidence gathered to date establishes the basic facts of the case, but there is much more to learn. Click HERE to join TIGHAR and be part of the team.

The Podcast Series: The Earhart Expeditions

TIGHAR’s new podcast series The Earhart Expeditions is available from all major podcast providers and is getting a great response from a large and growing new audience: “I just wanted to send an email to say how much I am enjoying the new podcasts. I’ve followed TIGHAR’s work pretty closely for a decade or so and consider myself pretty informed about your work, but the detailed play-by-play that Ric gives in the podcast is fascinating and really enjoyable. The relaxed conversational style is perfect.”

Each episode of is an informal conversation between Executive Director Ric Gillespie and Joan Sacks. Joan has been a TIGHAR member since 2012. Like most TIGHAR members, she’s familiar with The Earhart Project but has never heard the full behind-the-scenes story of the successes and failures, discoveries and disappointments, adventures and lessons that have brought us to where we are today.

The series is being presented in Seasons, with the episodes in each season covering one of the twelve TIGHAR expeditions to the Phoenix Islands. We release a new episode every Tuesday.

Podcasts are free, but you can get special bonus episodes by becoming a premium subscriber through Patreon for a small monthly contribution.
