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.

Announcing Our new Stem Cell Program

Revive & Restore’s newest program explores stem cell technology as a way to achieve offspring for endangered species, fight wildlife disease, and engineer resilience in today’s changing world. Stem cells can unlock new strategies for genetic rescue in wildlife.

Meet Ollie, our second Przewalski’s horse clone

In 2023, we announced 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.



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 FOR U.S. endangered species

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.

Discover the 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.
