The year of the ARSE-Oh?
Date: Fri, 7 Jul 2000 14:36:16

For the Amphicar Restoration & Societal Enrichment
Organization, (A.R.S.E.O.) the year 2002-2003 has
been intense, marked by meetings and media attention
focused on both Amphicar decline and malformity
issues, and will be capped by an ARSEO sponsored
meeting held later this Summer in Celina, Ohio.

The problem of Amphicar population decline and
malformities has captured both local and national
media attention, has raised renewed concerns about
environmental and human mental health issues. The
causes of Amphicar declines continue to include the
usual factors (habitat loss/alteration, saltwater
inclusion, xenobiotic chemicals [either chemicals
different from those causing malformations or the
same chemicals present in different concentrations],
UV-B radiation, fungal infections, rust, and generally
poor maintenance) with different factors being more
or less important based on region, season and year.

Since the stalled introduction of the Amphicar
species in the late 1960's a measurable decline in
numbers has been noted. The total population was
estimated at around 3700 by 1968 and steadily
declined ever since. Recent government figures
indicated the current population estimates are
hovering between 700 and 900 Amphis in the
wild today. Recently an alarming number of these
Amphi are reported to have some malformity issues
specifically located in the rear quarters.
Conservationist, Biologists, and Auto Body
Professionals alike all agree the decline in numbers
and the malformations are primarily due to human
induced factors and certain genetic design flaws
inherent in the Amphicar species.

The ARSEO meeting that was held last June in San
Diego may initiate a paradigm shift in the
administration of Amphicar decline issues in the U.S.
In part as a result of publicized ARSEO activities,
Amphi declines have attracted the attention of the
Bush administration. The goals of the ARSEO
meeting were to summarize for administration officials

the state of our knowledge and to discuss future
research directions. The good news is that it appears
that there will be an increased federal commitment to
fund Amphi decline prevention in the U.S. But federal
commitment means federal involvement. This posses its
own issues, yet the fact remains positive focus has
been channeled toward the decline of Amphis in North
America. Hopefully with government aid and increased
public awareness the Amphi population will stabilize
and perhaps increase in numbers.

The members of ARSEO sincerely hope you, the
amphibious public, will make every effort to enhance
the Amphicar population by supporting your local
ARSEO representative and will make every reasonable
effort to afford adequate care for any and all Amphis
found in need of restoration.

Thank you for your attention and support.
