Our project in the News!

Comment

Hello generous backers! 

Thanks to your help, we've been making great progress on our fundraising campaign and we've also gotten some great publicity in the media.

Last week, Carin Bondar wrote about our book project on the Scientific American website: http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/psi-vid/2012/04/04/want-to-run-a-successful-kickstarter-campaign-start-with-cinematic-genius/

and today, our project was featured on National Geographics News Watch: http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2012/04/11/a-rainbow-of-lizards-in-the-mediterranean/

We're excited to continue working with National Geographic to help us reach a big audience with our field dispatch as this project progresses.

We still have some fundraising to do before we reach our goal, so we'd be incredibly grateful if you would share our project with others.

Thank you again!

All the best,

Nate, Neil and Valentin
