Tech Tutors Season 4
East Africa

Are you looking for ways to grow your conservation technology knowledge and skills this year? Tech Tutors: East Africa is your opportunity to learn practical skills and steps that will become the building blocks you need to push your conservation tech work and research forward! 

Our new season of Tech Tutors begins this week and will run through to the end of May! On the 9th of February 2023 (4-5pm, EAT | 1-2pm GMT), Arthur Muneza will take us through our first tutorial: How do I fit GPS satellite tags to remotely monitor giraffe movements? With lessons from his work with the awarding winning Twiga Tracker Initiative, Arthur will provide the foundational tools and technical know-how of starting off a biologging project.
