EIE ADVISORY BOARD



Endangered Islands Expedition's Advisory Board consists of a diversified cross representation of individuals recognised for their expertise in fields related to our production. Included among them are scientists, anthropologists, biologists, oceanographers, writers, sailors and technicians who will play a significant role in the development and production of State of Evolution.
