Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC), is a new, multi-sector partnership dedicated to the conservation of herpetofauna (amphibians and reptiles) and their habitats.
PARC was formed in 1998 to address these needs and to find solutions. PARC is composed of representatives from:
Federal and state agencies
The forest products industry
The pet trade industry
Environmental consultants and contractors
PARC is not a funding organization or a policy maker, but fosters better communication and cooperation among groups that are interested in the conservation of reptiles and amphibians. PARC enables each and every person and group involved to become more aware of national and regional issues confronting amphibians and reptiles. PARC also gives individuals a better idea of how they, or their agency or organization, can contribute to conservation of herpetofauna and their habitats. The diversity of participants makes PARC the most comprehensive conservation effort ever undertaken for amphibians and reptiles.
The PARC Mission
To conserve amphibians, reptiles, and their habitats as integral parts of our ecosystem and culture through proactive and coordinated public/private partnerships.
