The science of de-extinction never sleeps and knows no bounds. At Colossal, our efforts are global in scale. Our pursuit of healing Earth and her inhabitants is tireless. We will right the wrongs of habitat loss, overhunting, poaching and the unnatural mistakes of humanity. From the woolly mammoth, to the Tasmanian tiger, dodo bird and other projects already underway, this is our promise. Together, we will soon wake up to a better tomorrow. As will these not-forgotten species. All who deserve another day in the sun.
Colossal’s landmark de-extinction project will be the resurrection of the woolly mammoth - or more specifically a cold-resistant elephant with all of the core biological traits of the woolly mammoth. It will walk like a woolly mammoth, look like one, sound like one, but most importantly it will be able to inhabit the same ecosystem previously abandoned by the Mammoth’s extinction.
The thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, is a large carnivorous marsupial that officially went extinct in 1936. As the only member of the family Thylacinidae to survive into modern times, the sharply-clawed thylacine possessed a lean and athletic appearance with sandy yellowish-brown to gray fur and 15-20 distinct dark stripes across the back from shoulders to tail. Its canid-like skull and large jaws held 46 sharp teeth.
A mysterious bird of increasingly mysterious origins, the dodo bird ruled the roost on its native island of Mauritius—and nowhere else—until meeting an untimely demise. Because in the late 17th century, man brought an abrupt end to the dodo species. Today, Colossal is committed to bringing it back.
MEGAFAUNA RESTORATION & THE RETURN OF OTHER PREVIOUSLY EXTINCT SPECIES
Colossal Laboratories & Biosciences employs the brightest minds and most talented scientists, geneticists and researchers at work today. Our state-of-the-art labs are headquartered in Dallas, Texas - but our footprint extends far beyond that. Reaching out to all seven continents, the permafrost, tundra, oceans, islands and some of the most prestigious universities the world has known.
"I am beyond thrilled to be a part of such an innovative company and concept. After a life dedicated to tracking down lost species in the wild, it’s a dream come true to be able to partner with Colossal and join their De Extinction mission. This work is a radical and exciting solution that is critical to the future of conservation."
