Devil Ark is very fortunate to have the support of committed individuals and organisations as Partners. Running a conservation project like Devil Ark is an expensive venture but saving a species is priceless. We rely on the ongoing support from our conservation partners to make the Ark happen and without their support it wouldn’t have been possible. All funds contributed by Project Partners on Devil Ark initiatives are spent directly on conservation initiatives. Likewise, any educational or research grants given to external parties must be exempt from administrative charges and overheads and are spent directly on saving threatened species.
