The AFC Flag Expeditions Program (formerly WNAG Flag Expeditions) was created to make possible the field study and artistic rendering of endangered species or habitats deserving of greater public attention. There is a strong emphasis on the study of unique, threatened habitats, and rare or endangered species in remote regions. AFC Signature Members can apply to obtain financial support and the privilege of carrying the AFC (WNAG) flag on their journeys to these distant and ecologically important areas of the planet.
