Noah's Ark Today was produced by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, a national nonprofit organization which protects rare breeds of farm animals from extinction. Founded in 1977, ALBC is the only organization in the United States with this mission.

The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy researches the status and characteristics of livestock and poultry breeds, educates the public about the importance of genetic diversity, offers information on rare breeds and use of such animals in sustainable agriculture, and provides technical support to breeders and farmers who raise farm animals.

The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy produced this program as part of its public education mission, with funding from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, The United Services Foundation of Durham, NC and the members of ALBC.

The first edition of Noah's Ark Today was co-written by Carolyn Christman and Elizabeth Byars This second edition was co-written by Tim and Cecelia King with input from teachers across North Carolina. Special thanks to: Cynthia Schwane (K teacher) and Meg Millard (5th Gr. Teacher).
