“I type this email as I sit in the Miami airport on my way to Manaus, Brazil to begin a 3 week National Geographic expedition to the Rio Roosevelt. Teddy Roosevelt first explored the river, originally named the River of Doubt, in 1914. We're heading back this month with a team of fish experts and local tribesmen to descend a 100 mile section of the river and complete the area's first biodiversity inventory study. As proposed dam projects loom on the horizon, our team will figure out what species would be affected if migration corridors are blocked and the river channels flooded and diverted. National Geographic will produce an hour-long episode for the series Monster Fish from this expedition that will air in about 6 months.

Brian Brawdy: Day 6 of “The 7 Sins of Summer Safety” Week: Trapped without alternative communications
Wednesday, 29 July 2009 16:00
SPOT Ambassador and survival Expert Brian Brawdy speaks to the importance of a communications plan for summer safety in his "Buried Logic" blog: “Communication, or the exchange of information, is often a determining factor in the length and severity of any survival scenario. Obviously, if you can convey your situation and location, survival becomes a good bit easier; most times, the greater your ability to communicate, the shorter your survival time, whether in wilderness or urban settings. When you need help, you simply call for help and then hold on until that help arrives.” To see how SPOT is an important part of this plan, see more here.
