Our store is officially open!

The Genetic Rescue Foundation is excited to announce the grand opening of our store! We're a not-for-profit organization and we hope to use our store as another fundraising avenue to help our talented scientists get the funding they need to complete their amazing research. Initially we're focusing on The Kakapo 125 project. This project aims to sequence the genomes of all 125 known living kākāpō. The kākāpō is a species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot endemic to New Zealand. A combination of traits make it unique among its kind; it is the world's only flightless parrot, the heaviest parrot and it's nocturnal.
