THE FROZEN ARK PROJECT

Saving the DNA and viable cells of the worldΚΌs endangered species

WELCOME TO THE FROZEN ARK

The Frozen Ark Project strives towards a world where extinction rates are sustainable and not created by man. Where the beauty, splendour and practical solutions found in all species is noted and used by man for the good of mankind and for the good of all life on Earth.Β 

 

OUR VISION

To safeguard the genetic material of endangered animals for their conservation and for the benefit of future generations.

OUR MISSION

To collect, preserve and conserve tissue, gametes, viable cells, and DNA of animal species facing extinction by providing infrastructure, expertise, partnership and coordination for endangered animal biobanking.

OUR AIMS

  • to facilitate and promote the conservation of tissue, cells and DNA from endangered animals;
  • to provide a portal where information can be accessed on samples already stored and available and where advice on biobanking for endangered species is provided;
  • to improve methods of collecting, storing, preserving and providing samples;
  • to make biological material available to help combat genetic erosion in conservation programmes;
  • to safeguard important genetic material for scientific research, for the advancement of knowledge and for the benefit of humankind;
  • to disseminate information about the current extinction crisis, its consequences for genetic biodiversity across the planet and on how genetic management of endangered species can help their fight for survival.

Very worrying news from Botswana 🐘.

National Park Rescue
Dr Niall McCann told BBC News that the Botswanian government was first alerted in early May, after conservationsists took a flight over the Okavango Delta and discovered hundreds of dead elephants.

🧐 Please tell us what you know (or don’t know!) about #biodiversity and #biobanking. Quick online quiz to help us improve our #publicengagement activities. We encourage parents to allow children (age 6+) to answer the questions as well (by conveying the questions to children and registering their responses), as we want to engage with anyone that would benefit from our activities. Please share widely with friends and family, in the UK and abroad. Thank you! β„οΈπŸ§¬πŸ¦‰πŸΈπŸ¦ŠπŸžπŸœπŸπŸ¦‚πŸ¦‘πŸ¦€πŸ…πŸ¦πŸ˜πŸ¦’πŸ¦œπŸ¦‘πŸ¦”πŸ¦ŽπŸ•·πŸ¦…πŸ¦‡πŸ§
