**Alaqua’s capital campaign, Project ARC, raises funds necessary to cover the relocation and expansion of their current facility to its permanent location on 85 acres of donated land in Freeport, FL.  The concept is to create an “animal welfare theme park” that will be an alternative to a zoo, but utilizing a zoological design.  Zoologist and former host Jim Fowler of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom is assisting them with the concept and design.  The project in its entirety is being laid out in phases.  Phase one will get them moved and operational and subsequent phases will add creative animal and educational exhibits, cabins for guests to stay, intern, and learn, and a chapel.  A $500,000 matching grant from the Dugas Family Foundation is in place through December 31, 2014 for phase one and the campaign has raised already $365,000 towards the match.
