We are building a world where biodiversity is valued as the foundation of a cleaner, greener & more sustainable future for all

The Basecamp Team



Born in wild places

Our story began as expedition scientists, pioneering metagenomic DNA analysis in challenging

environments. This drove our fascination in biodiversity that remains undiscovered all around us.

We are a team of data scientists, biologists and explorers united by a sense of adventure and the belief that nature has already designed the solutions to our planet's greatest challenges.

Come join us!
