Donate equipment and supplies. We are still looking for gently used items to keep our footprint low, so if you work in a lab, please consider sending us anything on this list that your lab has accumulated but no longer needs or uses. We are grateful for gently used and functional equipment on our wishlist but will accept other items as well, including certain consumables that require refrigeration. Use the form below to let us know what you have to donate. We will contact you immediately to discuss the details and arrange for a shipment. In-kind donations by the end of 2017 are particularly appreciated.

  • In-kind Donation Form

Make a financial contribution. We hope to offer all our services at subsidised costs to researchers and conservationists – every penny helps.
