Michigan Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation

About Us

Michigan Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation was founded in 2009 as the first midwest chapter for PARC and one of the first state chapters. PARC structure is a bottom-up approach, and Michigan exemplifies this strategy.

Our Mission

"To conserve amphibians, reptiles and their habitats as integral parts of our ecosystem and culture through proactive and coordinated public/private partnerships in Michigan and the Great Lakes Region."
