In order to conduct high impact research of ethical and scientific merit, and that contribute to biodiversity conservation, the NZG has established the Research Ethics and Scientific Committee (RESC) that meets once every month to assess research project proposals.

To conduct research at the NZG, please contact the Research Coordinator (Lufuno Netshifhefhe). You first have to contact the Research Coordinator to get a project number before completing any of the application documents.
