2015 Betchart Trip to Nikumaroro is ON

Plans are coming together for a visit to Nikumaroro in 2015 sponsored by Betchart Expeditions -- see  The ship will accommodate about 130 passengers; this is an unusual (at best) opportunity to visit the island and take part in TIGHAR's research at a fairly affordable price.  Ric Gillespie and I are scheduled to be among the TIGHAR leaders, and we're busily planning the visit.

This trip is not to be confused with the deep-water search of the Nutirain reef slope with manned submersables, being planned for later this year.  TIGHAR will be releasing information on that expedition in the near future.
