We collaborate with entrepreneurs and business leaders to demonstrate how their skills, services and products can be used to help save threatened species.

Odonata continues to explore opportunities and back entrepreneurs with a vision for experiences in nature and on nature-focused farms.
Reconnecting people to our natural places and engaging them in conservation and species recovery is an important aspect of our work. We are working towards reconnection through partnerships with major NGOs, regenerative farmers and landowners. See below for a collection of businesses that Odonata has incubated and now runs, for more information on corporate partnerships click here
