The Regal Swan™ team would like to thank its sponsors for making this trip a reality. This important research expedition was made possible through the kind support of several international corporate sponsors. As with any venture, countless hours of support, logistics and equipment are needed to move such a large group to areas of harsh wilderness and wet, freezing temperatures. However, the equipment used to sponsor the team rose to the occasion, keeping everyone warm, dry and ready for the long treks during the three-day expedition through the wetlands and marshes of Virginia.
