#Tech4Wildlife Week
Join the 7th Annual Photo Challenge

We're kicking off our annual #Tech4Wildlife Week on Monday 12 September. Join our photo challenge to share your exciting and innovative conservation tech work with our community!

Our annual #Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenge is a weeklong celebration of our community and all the innovative and impactful ways you’re using conservation tech. Every year on Twitter, we bring together community members from around the world to showcase and honor the exciting, unique, and groundbreaking work of conservation tech users and makers alike.

Getting involved is simple - just use the hashtag #Tech4Wildlife on Twitter to share photos and videos of how you use tech in the field, lab, or wherever it is you’re working! This is your chance to show off your projects - big, small, new, or old - and share with our global community the diverse, innovative ways that you’re impacting wildlife conservation with technology of all kinds.

So tell us - or better yet, show us - how are you using #Tech4Wildlife?
