End of expedition 2022


The B.I.G. Expedition could not happen without the generous support of its sponsors.

Felicity and her team extend their heart-felt thanks to all the sponsors who have donated their expert products and/​or much needed funds. Every sponsor shares the team’s commitment to the purpose of the expedition, the importance of the science and the ability of positive action to create a better future for all. 

Together, we can and will make a difference.

For more than a century, Rolex has been an active supporter of pioneering explorers. Through its Perpetual Planet initiative, the company reinforced its commitment and fosters outstanding individuals and organizations using science to understand and devise solutions to today's environmental challenges.

Moncler was born in the mountains, with a mission to equip workers, expeditions, and athletes and inspire performance at the pinnacle. From extreme alpine protection, Moncler has evolved into a brand that also outfits active metropolitans. Our next journey is our most formidable yet: to preserve the planet for tomorrow’s explorers. Moncler Born To Protect is our promise to the future, rooted in five unwavering principles. Act on climate change. Think circular. Be fair. Nurture genius. Give back.
