The REST (Rare and Endangered Species Trust) mission is to initiate and support the scientific and practical study of rare and endangered species in Namibia and to help develop and facilitate solutions to community, national and international problems with these species. REST was founded in 2000 to research and provide logistic support for Namibias endangered species. The Trust was established with the primary focus being the Cape Griffon Vulture (Gyps Coprotheres) , Namibia's most endangered species. In its efforts, REST is gaining support from around Southern Africa and the world. Their advisory board includes Dr. Chris Brown, head of NNF (Namibia Nature Foundation) and acknowledged expert on Namibia's Cape Griffon vultures; Dr. Peter Mundy of Zimbabwe and Dr. Steven Piper, co-authors of an encyclopedia on vultures; Dr. John Mendelson in charge of our GIS satellite monitoring and Dr. Ara Monajem from Swazi land; and Prof. Gerhard Verdoorn of Birdlife South Africa.
Art for ConservationTM Commitment Goal:
Rare and Endangered Species Trust (REST) has been indicated by AFC members as a potential recipient of donations by participating artists. AFC's Art for ConservationTM program, provides a forum to promote artwork that benefits recognized conservation organizations such as Rare and Endangered Species Trust (REST).
AFC members have voluntarily and independently earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork to Rare and Endangered Species Trust (REST). AFC's Art for ConservationTM program provides a forum to help promote artwork for sale that includes such a commitment. Each artists's commitment is contingent on the sale of their work and the above estimate is a potential total based on the completion of sale of any original work and/or limited editions. The AFC is not involved in any way with artwork sales transactions, nor does it make any guarantees relating to artist commitments. The AFC takes no commission whatsoever from the sale of artwork under the Art for ConservationTM program, unless explicitly indicated.
