The Ark is sustained both by its volunteers and by its funders.
If you would like to assist by volunteering, refer to Being a Volunteer
If you would like to assist by providing financial support, you can Help a Hectare. On-going support of $50/year will provide predator control for one hectare, and also supports the restoration of new species that have been lost from the area.
