Nature’s SAFE is a living tissue biobank, preserving live cells from animals threatened with extinction. In a time of declining biodiversity, Nature’s SAFE aims to provide an insurance policy for the world’s most threatened wildlife. We collaborate with the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria to safeguard live reproductive cells and cell lines collected after neutering or from deceased individuals of threatened animal species. If needed in the future, these cells can be brought out of storage, and with endangered species breeding programmes, be used to assist in sustainable repopulation in the event of extinction. We endeavour to prevent extinction and protect biodiversity for generations to come.
Nature’s SAFE is on a mission to Save Animals From Extinction by collecting, indefinitely storing and regenerating reproductive cells and cell lines from endangered animal species.
