Our mission: Marsupial conservation and de-extinction of the thylacine

Over the past decade, the concept of de-extinction has transitioned out of the realm of science fiction to science fact.

The advances needed to drive thylacine de-extinction all have immediate conservation benefits for our fragmented and threatened marsupial species.

We are passionate about developing these tools to save our unique Australian fauna and to aid in the de-extinction of one of most the enigmatic marsupial species to have existed in modern times – the thylacine.
