Brave News World

In an increasingly interconnected world, the HMS Beagle Project is expanding its global profile through channels like Facebook, where our extended reach is nearly 70,000 people, and Twitter, where we have 2,000 followers with a reach of over 100,000. We also 'spot' news for online daily papers such as Evolution Daily and Leadership and Innovation Daily, with a readership of 15,000.
