AOA Origins and Purpose AOA is a combined effort of artists, musicians, performers, writers, and film-makers to promote animal rescue, ocean conservation and protection of endangered species. The initial focus is on animal rescue and protection in the Gulf because of the active crisis and catastrophe.
AOA came about after the airing of a CBS segment on June 13 when an eleven-year-old girl was so distraught over the death of turtles and pelicans from the BP oil deluge that she decided to create artwork and sell it to help save animals. This crystallized the commitment of several prominent artists, writers and musicians to support animal rescue and protection through the creation of AOA.
What makes us unique is that our founders include long-time environmentalists and scientists with an eye for what works and what doesn't, and the importance at this point in earth history of transforming consciousness through carefully chosen efforts. The Gulf disaster should never have happened and we are intent in making sure that it doesn't happen again. We are also committed to stemming carbon emissions, protecting the Arctic, coral reefs and precious wildlands before it is too late.
All of us as artists realize that our own art and the quality of our lives depend heavily on a healthy undegraded environment. Nature is both a source of our own inspiration and spiritual well being. As a group we've decided we need to take a stand and encourage others to join us.
