The Database for Living Beings in Captivity

Helping  preserving    BIODIVERSITY

KeepBase is a non-profit database, allowing online registration of living beings in captivity: from public zoos to our home.

By keeping track of those specimens, their breedings and generations, it is possible to preserve well identified strains, close to what they once were in nature, optimizing genetic recombination and taking advantage of very small genetic pools.

Besides species registration, KeepBase helps collecting information from search engines and other sources and it includes facilities for:

  • Non-profict entities related to the study and conservation of living beings
  • Breeding programs with conservation purposes
  • Educational institutions

KeepBase is organized in autonomous units called Keeping Areas normally following the scientific classification (taxonomy).

First keeping area available: Fish.
