How are you using tech for wildlife conservation? A picture says a thousand words, so take a photo this World Wildlife Day and share how you're using #Tech4Wildlife!

To celebrate World Wildlife Day, this week we’re asking users of conservation tech, like yourself, to share photos on Twitter of how they use tech in the field and the lab, using the #Tech4Wildlife hashtag. This is your chance to show the diverse, innovative ways you are using tech for wildlife conservation.

By participating, you’ll join hundreds of other users of conservation tech and draw attention to the ways in which tech can be used to support wildlife conservation. In the 2017 Photo Challenge, we saw 2500+ tweets around the hashtag from 500+ users, with 180 photos and 11 videos posted. We've seen everything: 3D printed robots, acoustic bat recorders in the middle of New York City, mobile frog labs, apps for monitoring ivory stocks, portable DNA sequencers, cameras for monitoring polar bear dens, and a huge antenna for tracking wildlife destined for the International Space Station!

Check out our highlights from 2017 and 2016

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

All next week, we will feature all the images shared in our #Tech4Wildlife image feed on WILDLABS.NET. On March 3, we'll celebrate World Wildlife Day and highlight the very best images shared in the 2018 #Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenge. Make sure you share your photos before March 3rd to be considered for the #Tech4Wildlife honours list.
