EXTINCTION IS A
COLOSSAL
PROBLEM FACING
THE WORLD.

And Colossal is the company that’s going to fix it.

Combining the science of genetics with the business of discovery, we endeavor to jumpstart nature’s ancestral heartbeat. To see the Woolly Mammoth thunder upon tundra once again. To advance the economies of biology and healing through genetics. To make humanity more human. And to reawaken the lost wilds of Earth. So we, and our planet, can breathe easier.

30,000

species per year on average are being driven to extinction.

The World Animal Foundation predicts that up to
ONE-HALF OF ALL SPECIES

could become extinct by 2050.

 

The UN has declared that

1,000,000
animal and plant
species are threatened
with extinction.
Since 1990, native
species of most land
habitats have FALLEN 20%.
MORE THAN
40%

of amphibians

33%

of reef-forming corals

and more than 1/3
of all marine mammals
are THREATENED.
The Solution Is
De-Extinction,
+

a functional application of advanced gene editing technology aimed at rebuilding the DNA of lost megafauna and other creatures that had a measurably positive impact on our fragile ecosystems.

DECODING LIFE

This is DNA and the
new dawn of genetics.

This is incomprehensibly microscopic.

Yet, this is Colossal - the advanced genetics and biosciences company that’s developing the science that will save us, our planet and the species that inhabit it.

BRINGING
BACK THE WOOLY
MAMMOTH
The Science of Resurrecting
the Woolly Mammoth.

In the minds of many, this creature is gone forever. But not in the minds of our scientists, nor the labs of our company. We’re already in the process of the de-extinction of the Woolly Mammoth. Our teams have collected viable DNA samples, and are editing the genes that will allow this wonderful megafauna to once again thunder through the Arctic.

FOR THE PLANET.
FOR THE ANIMALS.
FOR THE FUTURE.

We are evolving for
the sake of tomorrow.

Human enterprise is responsible for many amazing developments. But many of them came at a cost to our planet and the natural resources the planet has provided for countless millennia. Colossal is leading the charge to restore what has been lost or is at risk of being lost.
