A new way to sponsor your research

Our goal is to help you sponsor your biodiversity projects.

YourSpecies is a private initiative that seeks to increase the funding and reward for new species discoveries.

Our basic idea is to use the naming rights of the new species by taxonomists as a way to produce an economic benefit for them.



Increase your chances of fundraising your projects

We know that describing a new species is very time consuming as well as very expensive. We love the idea that selling the name of your new species will help you to sponsor your research projects and allowing you to earn money doing what you love to do.


Finding a sponsor

Finding a sponsor can be tough work. Fortunately, we know how to find them and let them know about your projects and your new discovered species. So you can focus on your work while we find the money that you need to keep doing it.


Submit your Species in 3 clicks

We take care of everything you need to find a sponsor. It’s free. You only have to send us the “submitter form” and, after reviewing it, your species will be displayed on our website.
