The Garage is where we create the next generation of conservation technology and support our grantees & innovators.
The Garage represents multiple facilities including our Product Development & Rapid Prototyping Lab in Washington, DC and Molecular Innovations Lab in Seattle, WA. The Garage is where we invent new Conservation X Labs technologies and provide technical assistance to our innovators and grantees. We focus on translating and advancing solutions addressing the underlying drivers of extinction from prototype to field- or market-ready product.
