THE FROZEN ARK PROJECT
Saving the DNA and viable cells of the worldʼs 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.
To safeguard the genetic material of endangered animals for their conservation and for the benefit of future generations.
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.
Join us @NHM_London for #EuropeanResearchersNight! @MikeBruford will explore how genetic material from animals can be frozen and stored for the future, with a live link behind the scenes to the Museum's MCf, where part of #FrozenArk collection is housed. https://t.co/7nRo95ApJ8 https://t.co/tN7YA9dYol
