Thank you to our backers!
Dear Backers of The Symbol,
Thank you so much for your generous contributions! In a little more than a month, 290 of you helped us raise more than $20,000 -- an average pledge of almost $70! We’ve been overwhelmed with all the support we’ve gotten, and we can’t wait to begin the project in earnest.
Right now we’re trying to finalize the logistics of our expedition. Our current plan is to spend about 4 weeks in Ibiza and Formentera between June and July. While we’re there, we’ll spend most of our time taking pictures of lizards, their habitats, and the other inhabitants of the islands (human and non-human!). Throughout our time on the islands, we’ll be sharing photos and videos from the field, so you can follow our expedition online as it progresses.
Within the next couple of weeks we’ll be sending out some quick surveys to all of our backers -- we need to make sure we’ve got all the information we need to fulfill the rewards you’ve earned for your support. Until then, we’re done bothering you :)
Thanks again for your help! We couldn’t have done it without you.
All the best,
Neil, Nate, and Valentín
