Banggai Cardinalfish Books Have Shipped!

September 8, 2013 in Kickstarter Updates, Project Updates, Slideshow

The Banggai Cardinalfish, 304 pages, Hardcover $44.95, Quality Softcover $34.95.

It’s another great week for all the Banggai Rescue Project. Tuesday, September 3rd, we began shipping hardcover and softcover copies of our book, Banggai Cardinalfish: A Guide to Captive Care, Breeding, & Natural History.

Copies destined for US addresses were shipped via USPS Priority Mail on Tuesday, which means most recipients in the US should have them. If you haven’t received your copy by perhaps Sept 12th or so, drop us an email so we can track your copy down! Most folks have received them, and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

International copies were shipped on Wednesday, September 4th. These will take longer to arrive, potentially significantly so; your patience is again appreciated!

eBook recipients should expect something very soon as well (possibly as early as this coming week); we’re simply finalizing the details prior to distribution.

Any outstanding rewards our team owes you are being worked on; a couple backers must wait just a little longer for special embellishments in their books, limited edition giclee prints, or original art. Any other outstanding rewards should be wrapped up in short order to the best of our ability.

I think I speak for all of us when I say we’re very happy to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this chapter of the Kickstarter project!

For anyone who did not back Banggai Rescue at a reward level with the book, but would now like to obtain a copy, publisher-direct single copies (hardcover, softcover and digital) are now available at:

Additionally, wholesale orders are now shipping from Two Little Fishies – for resale purchases.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (team member Matt Pedersen) directly via email – matt.pedersen at and I will personally address your inquiry.

Thank you yet again for all your patience and support.

The first round of Banggai rewards are departing Maine next week for your doorstep as we draw nearer to fulfilling our mission . Thanks to everyone once again for their support, and once again we’re sorry for the delay. The final results of the scientific work conducted in both Indonesia and Florida have just been received and reviewed, meaning that, with a couple small tweaks, we are ready to move toward press.
