Unlike agriculture or medicine, the field of conservation continues to have limited access to innovations in molecular biology and genomics. Yet these innovations have the potential to greatly empower current conservation practice. 

At Revive & Restore, we believe that innovation is necessary to create solutions to the current environmental crisis. Our mission is to enhance biodiversity, and we are pursuing this by bringing biotechnologies to conservation. A major focus of our work is to fund, advocate for, and build a set of biotech-based conservation tools that can support a more biodiverse 21st century, what we call the Genetic Rescue Toolkit.
