Congratulations to Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC), who received The Wildlife Society's Group Achievement Award, which recognizes an organization's outstanding wildlife achievement. PARC joins other imminent conservation organizations, including the Wildlife Management Institute, The Nature Conservancy, the [International] Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, the National Wild Turkey Federation, and many other productive and respected wildlife conservation groups as a recipient of this award. PARC was officially recognized at the 2013 Annual Meeting of The Wildlife Society.
The following request for proposals has been developed by the Amphibian and Reptile Conservancy (ARC) in collaboration with PARC’s Year of the Lizard campaign to support conservation of lizard species and their habitats native to the United States. PARC is an inclusive partnership that serves to unite individuals and groups who are committed to conserving amphibians and reptiles and their habitats. ARC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that assists in and develops amphibian and reptile conservation projects and partner efforts that support the mission and goals of PARC. PARC designated 2012 as the Year of the Lizard – the status of lizards and current threats were assessed, and newsletters were produced bimonthly to promote the conservation of these species and their habitats.
As of July 2011, funds that ARC toward a workshop addressing road impacts, and crossing structures to prevent these impacts, on amphibians, reptiles, and their habitats have resulted in a book contract with Johns Hopkins University Press.
The details of an ARC co-sponsored (via PARC), international symposium to address the deadly Ranavirus that impacts amphibians, turtles and even fish have been posted.
ARC has been helping to support the memory of Alison Haskell, a herpetofaunal hero.
