Revive & Restore is the leading wildlife conservation organization promoting the incorporation of biotechnologies into standard conservation practice. Our mission is to enhance biodiversity through the genetic rescue of endangered and extinct species. Our vision is to revive biodiversity and restore ecosystems for millennia to come.

Advancing alternatives to horseshoe crab blood

Every year, hundreds of thousands of horseshoe crabs are harvested for their blood, despite the availability of safe and effective alternatives. We advocate for the adoption of synthetic alternatives to blue blood for endotoxin testing.

Meet our new Przewalski’s horse clone

We’re excited to announce the birth of the world’s second successfully cloned Przewalski’s horse! The new foal, born February 17th, offers hope that cloning can be a viable tool for the genetic rescue of endangered species.


Bringing Biotech to Wildlife Conservation

In this seminar, Executive Director Ryan Phelan reflects on the journey of Revive & Restore over the past 10 years. Her talk is a tribute to our work with scientists around the world and commitment to ecological restoration.



The newly launched “Biotechnology for Bird Conservation Program” will enable genetic rescue biotechnologies to help save endangered birds. Awarded projects from our first call for proposals have been announced.

Informed Biobanking

Revive & Restore, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has embarked on a bold endeavor to biobank U.S. endangered species. This is the first time the USFWS has partnered on an agency-wide biobanking initiative.

Advanced Coral Toolkit

The Advanced Coral Toolkit is a funding program that supports the development and field testing of new biotechnologies that have the potential to greatly benefit coral resilience and restoration efforts.


Why this work matters

Together, we can reverse the extinction trajectory.

Biotechnology offers tools that can enhance conservation outcomes, from restoring genetic diversity to facilitating adaptation. Together, we CAN turn the tide on species loss.
