Scientific expeditions in the 21st century?

Naturevolution’s aim is to improve knowledge of the planet’s biodiversity, and above all to improve its protection. With this in mind, we organise scientific expeditions that enable us to gain a better understanding of some of the richest and most threatened parts of the globe, but also some of the most difficult to access. The numerous discoveries of new species during our missions, as well as the knowledge acquired about the history of human populations, topography and geology, not only help science to make great advances, but above all provide the evidence and media coverage needed for conservation initiatives.

  • Major logistical and technical resources
    But in the complex terrain of the regions we are targeting, these extreme lands that have been forgotten by mankind, this work is not an easy task, as it requires the deployment of logistical resources and specific technical skills.
  • Local and international collaborations
    Naturevolution works with both local institutions and international networks of specialists to study and make scientific use of the biological material collected during its expeditions.
  • Commitments
    We also commit to respecting national and international legislation concerning research permits and the export of samples. Finally, no trade or patent on living organisms is carried out. We also aim to run these expeditions with minimal impact on the environment, with respect for the local populations and with the potential for economic benefits.
  • A significant impact in terms of conservation
    Also, the many solid arguments that we bring back from these missions on the biological and cultural treasures of these regions and the dangers that threaten them, enable us to get the support of national and international environmental bodies in order to run the appropriate safeguard operations. It’s our main mission
