Setting the partnering benchmark for ethical biodiscovery

Our partners around the world collaborate with us under the Nagoya Protocol of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity to collect and process environmental samples that serve as the basis of our commercial products.

Together, we can protect biodiversity at the global scale.

Why work with Basecamp Research?

Global impact

Basecamp Research is at the very forefront of diplomacy, exploration and biotechnology. Through our Global Research Programme, we have built non-exclusive biodiversity partnerships spanning 23 countries: we help develop bioliteracy by providing local teams with the skills, technologies and platform required to discover, understand and generate income from their natural world.

Our aim is to understand the natural world's complexity in close collaboration with in-country partners.

Data insight

We provide local partners insight into the microbial communities within their protected areas to help with a vast array of research and conservation projects. Through our work, we hope to build a new value chain that values our planet’s biodiversity as the source of a new, cleaner, healthier and more sustainable future for all living things on Earth.
