South African National Biodiversity Institute

The South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI), based in Pretoria, focuses on building up the knowledge of South Africa’s rich species biodiversity. They do this by facilitating access to biodiversity data, generating new information with exciting studies and conserving this within their National Zoology and Botanical Gardens.

SANBI’s mission is to champion the exploration, conservation, sustainable use, appreciation, and enjoyment of South Africa’s exceptionally rich biodiversity for all South Africans.

FreeMe Wildlife supplies SANBI with species DNA as part of the Barcode for Wildlife biobank, and the GEF7 wildlife forensic genetics project.
