Advancing the science and curation of biomaterials for conservation

How We Save Species

We curate and manage diverse biomaterials collections as a global tool for preventing plant and animal extinction. In our work, we seek to maximize genetic diversity and collection integrity of our Frozen Zoo® and other biomaterials collections. We train and advise colleagues in the establishment and expansion of biobanks, and provide biomaterials to scientific collaborators worldwide.
