Biowatch, established in 1997, is a national non-governmental organisation to publicise, monitor and research issues of genetic engineering and promote biological diversity and sustainable livelihoods. Biowatch strives to prevent biological diversity from being privatised for corporate gain. They aspire to an environment where people control their food supply systems, where the benefits from commercial use of biological resources are fairly shared and where ordinary citizens are encouraged to help make policy choices about new technologies, such as genetic engineering.

Biowatch is based in South Africa and has its head office in Cape Town in the Western Cape and offices in Elandskraal in the Limpopo Province and Mtubatuba in KwaZulu Natal.
