Join the #Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenge

Are you using tech for wildlife conservation? Snap a pic this World Wildlife Day and post it with the #Tech4Wildlife hashtag.

Are you ready for our annual #Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenge? On 3 March, we celebrate World Wildlife Day by asking our community to share photos showing how they are using technology in the field or lab, using the #Tech4Wildlife hashtag. 

Last year, our community shared hundreds of photos and videos from the field. In the first 10 days alone we saw 1500+ tweets from 500 users, with 185 photos and 12 videos posted. We had everything from robot cheetahs, acoustic bat recorders in the middle of New York City, to mobile frog labs and portable DNA sequencers! Participants started by sharing their photos, but soon found themselves also passing on their experience as in-depth conversations sprung up around the capabilities of different technologies and the outcomes of the projects being shared. 

Check out our 10 favourite entries from last year's challenge.

To participate this year, all you need to do is: 

  1. Take a photo of how you are using tech to save wildlife
  2. Share it on Twitter: tell us a bit about your work and the tech featured
  3. Remember to use the hashtag #Tech4Wildlife and tag us at @WILDLABSNET

We can't wait to check out the photos you post. We may even select yours to appear on the WILDLABS.NET website!
