PRESS: River Gambia Expedition gets a plug from ‘Down Under’ – G-Layer (for Yellowbrick)

We’re getting the River Gambia Expedition name around – globally – thanks to John Murphy and the guys at G-Layer in Australia for plugging our forthcoming journey! They are the Australian distributors of Yellowbrick™ Tracking Devices – one of our main sponsors.

‘We draw on our decades of experience in connecting remote areas with the rest of the planet. We have worked with some of the world’s largest NGOs as well as on ocean-going vessels, in Antarctica, the Amazon jungle, the Indonesian rainforest, the Himalaya, and the polar circle.’ G-Layer – Truly global solutions for tracking and communications.’

If you’d like to support the River Gambia Expedition – and receive ‘rewards’ for doing this (namely: exclusive, limited edition, fine art photography prints from our very own award-winning photographer, Jason Florio), please check out our Kickstarter campaign. We have 19 days left  – and we’re 35% funded. However, we need the campaign to be 100% funded to get the pledges, from our donors, released by the deadline of 15th October.

So…come on in, the water’s fine!

Thanks to everyone who has jumped on board so far. You rock (but, not as in the boat…thankfully!)!

The Florios (H & Flo)
