CARES Preservation Program

The CARES Preservation Program has just launched a new website at For those not familiar with the CARES program there is a short article by Lee Ann Steeves giving an overview on the program. Along with the new website, new articles have been published including one from Stuart M. Grant on the Rift Lakes of Africa.

"The purpose of the CARES Preservation Program is to create a base stock of conservation priority species through encouraging hobbyists worldwide to devote tank space to one or more species at risk and distribute offspring to fellow qualified hobbyists, while forming an information network where possible between aquarists, scientists, and conservationists."
