Naturalis works with dozens of companies and government bodies to preserve biodiversity. The possibilities are endless, and we would be happy to talk to you about innovative collaboration.

    A partnership with Naturalis offers you countless possibilities, such as sponsoring research, the collection or our museum, adopting a top exhibit from the collection (name connection), participating in scientific expeditions, sustainable activation, participation in big-data projects, product development and innovation processes, or an event or conference at Naturalis.
