Ann Clarke (immunologist)
She and her husband Bryan Clarke made several scientific expeditions to French Polynesia, where they realised that the partula snail was facing rapid extinction after the introduction of a predator as a biological control for a different species. Inspired by this, they and Anne McLaren (1927-2007) founded the Frozen Ark project to preserve the DNA of species threatened with extinction. As of 2017[update] the project held some 48,000 frozen samples from 5,500 species.
