The AArk is a joint effort of 3 principal partners: the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), the IUCN/SSC Conservation Breeding Specialist Group (CBSG), and the IUCN/SSC Amphibian Specialist Group (ASG). They were formed to address the ex-situ components of the Amphibian Conservation Action Plan (ACAP). Their vision is the world's amphibians safe in nature. Their mission is working in partnerships to ensure the global survival of amphibians – focusing on those that cannot be safeguarded in nature. They coordinate ex-situ programs implemented by partners around the world, with the first emphasis on programs within the range countries of the species, and with a constant attention to our obligation to couple ex-situ conservation measures with necessary efforts to protect or restore species in their natural habitats.
Art for ConservationTM Commitment Goal:
Amphibian Ark has been indicated by AFC members as a potential recipient of donations by participating artists. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program, provides a forum to promote artwork that benefits recognized conservation organizations such as Amphibian Ark.
AFC members have voluntarily and independently earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to Amphibian Ark. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program provides a forum to help promote artwork for sale that includes such a commitment. Each artists's commitment is contingent on the sale of their work and the above estimate is a potential total based on the completion of sale of any original work and/or limited editions. The AFC is not involved in any way with artwork sales transactions, nor does it make any guarantees relating to artist commitments. The AFC takes no commission whatsoever from the sale of artwork under the Art for ConservationTM program, unless explicitly indicated.
The Worldwide Nature Artists Group is an international, non-profit
