Who we are:
At Revive & Restore we are building a new conservation toolkit for “Genetic Rescue in the 21st Century” by applying biotechnologies to some of the toughest biodiversity challenges. Our projects are demonstrating the measurable impact biotechnology can have for wildlife by enhancing genetic diversity, helping to build disease resistance, developing synthetic alternatives to wild harvest and facilitating adaptation to a changing climate.
We are the leading conservation organization promoting the incorporation of genetic tools into standard conservation practice, bringing together the academic or commercial labs advancing the science and the conservation practitioners working in the field. Revive & Restore has three distinct roles as a convener, as a science coordinator, and, increasingly, as a funder – advancing the necessary science to build the new conservation toolkit.
We are spearheading exciting, collaborative projects in genomic conservation with promising results. https://reviverestore.org
